#1. This amazing relationship the duo has built allowed the lucky photographer to capture something as unique as the animal itself on his camera lens.
#2. Those who live in northern North America are no strangers to cross foxes as they are abundant in the area.
#3. They have amazing fur coats with dark stipes that run down their back across their shoulders. The contrast of the dark and orange is something extraordinary.
#4. About 30% of the Canadian red fox population is made up of them, and yet, they are still a special sight to behold.
#5. “Our first encounter was calculated, I was focused on how to not disturb this wild animal, but at the same time, I was trying to assure him that I was not a threat.”
#6. Here is a video of the fire fox in Canada.
#7. Gaby put in a lot of effort to gain the animal’s trust.
#8. Fortunately, he didn’t give up and after repeated visits, the fox gradually learnt to be comfortable around the photographer and his camera.
#9. After the first two years, Gaby returned several times to check up on his friend.
#10. That is when he learnt about the siblings of this fox. They are also depicted in Gaby’s photographs.
#11. “I am impressed with his beauty but also his level of intelligence.”
#12. “I’ve witnessed him hunting, hiding and retrieving food stores, and interacting with other foxes. He was extremely playful, especially with his sibling, I gave them both names; Mat and Pat.”
So what do you think of this unique looking fox?
