Arctic Fox

Vulpes lagopus

Description:

While working in the Arctic Circle I was out taking photos when I came across this fox. He didn't notice me at first but you can see his reaction in the third picture when he finally recognized me. I managed to snap a few more shots as he left over the tundra.
