A Goose chasing an Arctic fox – Wrangel Island, Russia
The beginning of June. I’ve spent almost two months on Wrangel Island, photographing foxes and snow geese. This fox is not hunting a goose, but came to the nest for robbing the egg. In fact, this goose attacks the predator to protect its progeny.
"The world that I see is in grave danger, and in recent years, the situation has become dramatically worse. If we don't do something soon, everything that we see today will be just a memory"
