16th Annual Photo Contest
Hungry Fox

I was in Wapusk National Park in Canada looking for polar bear cubs. One morning, while driving to the bears' denning area, we noticed this Arctic fox, very far away, coming in our direction across a frozen lake and carrying something huge and red in its mouth. When it got closer, my guide explained to me that Arctic foxes are scavengers and often steal parts of wolves' kills, in this case a big piece of caribou.
