I had been camping in a remote valley on the Arctic island of Svalbard for several weeks. As the season warmed and the flowers started to bloom, I noticed a young Arctic fox becoming more and more inquisitive. One day as I sat eating my lunch he curiously approached me. I grabbed my camera, which had a 300mm lens attached but by now he was too close to frame up. As I slowly moved back I took this shot before he dived for my lunch and ran off with a cheese sandwich. #Svalbard #Arctic #Fox #Curious #Wildlife #Nature #BBC #EarthOnLocation #Tundra
