This post is inspired by the winner of the London Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2015 Competition. Don Gutoski composed a stunning photograph, “The Tail of Two Foxes”, which captures a Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) carrying away the carcass of an Arctic Fox (Vulpes lagoons) it recently killed. With a warming climate the Red Fox is slowly expanding its range in the Arctic leading to conflicts with the Arctic Fox. As the primary competitor for resources, the smaller Arctic Fox is fighting a losing battle and in some cases becoming dinner.
About the Illustration: Watercolor and micron pens-Nature is a constant battle for survival and I wanted to depict that battle by a victorious Red Fox in an Arctic Fox headdress. This image is available via Redbubble.
