Stunning Photos Of Red Foxes In The Netherlands Learning To Navigate In Rare Blizzard Conditions

Stunning Photos Of Red Foxes In The Netherlands Learning To Navigate In Rare Blizzard Conditions –

 

In 2016, we wrote about Dutch wildlife photographer Roeselien Raimond and her gorgeous Foxy Faces portrait series. In her more recent series “Red Foxes in the Snow“, Raimond has once again captured the wonderfully personalities of individual vulpines as they learned to navigate around in the fresh snow of a very rare blizzard.

Snow has become quite a rare phenomenon over here. It has been years since I had the chance to photograph foxes in a blizzard. Recently I finally had another chance. Needless to say I grabbed it with both hands …Foxes are well prepared for heavy weather, with their beautiful water-resistant fur coats and most of the time they just ignore it. But this particular blizzard was quite heavy and even the fox didn’t seem to have a ready-made scenario for this type of weather.

“Fox’ First Snow” One of the best things about snow and foxes, besides the highly photogenic combination…is the thrill of watching a young fox seeing its first snow. The excitement when they see these countless white toys come falling from the sky, like early Christmas present. It remembers me of being a child. After an endless summer and autumn, finally, winter knocked in. The staring from the window, almost getting hypnotized by these millions of falling flakes. Grabbing your boots, gloves and scarf and rushing outside to PLAY! Building snowmen and playing a snowball fight. Playing until the last light was gone and you had to go in, due to the cold. Well, of course young foxes don’t build snowmen and they don’t throw snow balls either ( although I’m pretty sure they would if they could), but they go just as crazy. They jump through the snow and over each other. They eat snow and roll through it. And the look on this fox says it all: SNOWPARTYYYYYY! 🦊☃️🦊❄️ . . . . #redfox #fox #foxinthesnow #snow #winter #wildlifeplanet #nature_brilliance #foxfriday #foxyfiday #animalelite #awesome_photographers #earthfocus #natgeo #ourplanetdaily #MoodyGrams #nakedplanet #nature #instanature #bestnatureshot #agameoftones #animal #naturephotography #theglobewanderer #ourplanetdaily #jaw_dropping_shots #wildgeography #nature_perfection #wildgeography #discoverwildlife #naturelover #christmas #christmascard Prints are available at my website: www.roeselien.com 🦊☃️

"Red Fox Flabbergasted by a Blizzard" Foxes are well prepared for heavy weather, with their beautiful water-resistant fur coats and most of the time they just ignore it.
