Some people may have already changed their view on the so-called cunning foxes. But they may still have no idea why there are so many photographers who are so fascinated about foxes, and Roeselien Raimond is ready to tell the answer. She’s talented Dutch Nature photographer who has taken numerous stunning photos of wildlife and nature, but her photos of wild foxes are especially gorgeous. As she herself put it, “Foxes, along with cats, are my favorite animals. Their depth and uniqueness appeals to me: every fox is an individual character. With a fox you never know what they are up to. Will they be hunting, sleeping, swimming…will they even be there at all? That’s exactly what continuously challenges me to immerse myself in their intriguing doings.” Keep scrolling to see these stunning photos, and for more her works, click here.
“Foxes, along with cats, are my favorite animals. Their depth and uniqueness appeal to me: Every fox is an individual character. Some are very elusive, while others can be quite cheeky. Some are very spontaneous and playful and some are just plain boring.”
“The one thing they all have in common is their unpredictability: With a fox, you never know what they are up to. Will they be hunting, sleeping, swimming… will they even be there at all? That’s exactly what continuously challenges me to immerse myself in their intriguing doings.”
“Once foxes are no longer hunted, they will be more diurnal and some will even come close to people. In the area I’m visiting, hunting isn’t allowed and dogs, cyclists and cars are prohibited. Thus, there is no threat for them at all and some foxes lose their elusiveness.”
“The last thing that interests me is a fox that sees me as a walking food dispenser. I’m interested in witnessing and capturing natural behaviour. Therefore, I need to make myself almost ‘invisible’ and a completely uninteresting part of the environment, waiting and hoping to witness that special fox moment…”
“Creativity, nature and people have always been the most important aspects of my life and I’m always trying to find a perfect combination. As long as I can be creative, feel the grass under my feet and smell the fresh air and preferably share this with some pleasant company, I’m fine!”
