Photo story: just before i get crazy idea of visiting Spitsbergen i had no lens for capture distanced objects. I had my favorite 28/1,8 canon which is perfect for landscape but no zoom. So night before flight i found shop via internet in Danzig(city i was flying from). And i get cheap tamron lens 70-300, its perfect for crop camera, work good with full frame cam like my Canon 5D as well. So i get it and make it on time to board plane.

About photo: Foxes, arctic ones, change plumage during summer. This was begging of summer so he didnt change it entirely. He looks hilarious ist it? :D

About the shot: a spotted that fox from far in the mountain slope, to far to make zoom like this. I dropped my backpack and run after it. Terrain was hilly thats why i was able to approach him. We run up and down for a while. After several minute race I cough him on this river bed. We both ware surprised - fox, because i get him, me myself because i saw him in perfect shot position. And so, we stood like that for few seconds, i take few shots, he gaze on me then run. I get back for my stuff, he get back for his chore. Happy ending. That's what it's all about.
