13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Arctic Fox Hunting

After breakfast we sailed through Freemanssundet and started to search for Polar bears in the drifting ice in Hinlopen, Svalbard Norway. We found 5 Arctic foxes (Vulpes lagopus) near the bird cliffs and one of them was spotted feeding on a Kittiwake killed earlier on.
