THE STORY BEHIND MY ARCTIC FOX PHOTOS
The Arctic. Early morning. I am in the Arctic to photograph wolves, but this particular morning, I get lucky with a fox. I was wondering how would he react in my presence, I was hesitant to approach him. When I dropped my fears, started to get close, and interacted with him, he got close to me immediately. Fact is, at first he was very skittish just the way I was. Later when I warmed up to him, he warmed up to me. And we had a great time.

Arctic Expedition Interview with Nikon
The fox wanted to play.
It was the second or third day of Ejaz Khan’s Canadian Arctic search for the elusive Arctic wolf—he’s actually not sure which day because searching the endless horizon for Arctic wolves “is so boring that time doesn’t pass”—when from inside his tent he saw motion outside.
“I don’t know what an Arctic wolf looks like, so I thought it was an Arctic wolf,” he says, “and I started to tense up. Then I realized it’s an Arctic fox.”
Well, all right, not the wolf he hoped for, but something to photograph other than vast expanses of white nothing.

Facts about the Arctic Fox
As I went out to capture these Arctic Fox photos, I’ve came across some interesting facts. The Arctic fox mates during the months of February and June. The female fox builds a new den and gives birth to 6-12 pups. But they often do not reproduce when their food source is scarce. Both the female and the male take care of the young ones. The male Arctic fox guards and also bring food to the den for the mother and the new pups. Lastly, they are nomadic and they move from place to place looking for food.
