Dutch wildlife photographer Roeselien Raimond captures the beauty and joy in nature, particularly through her fantastic red fox photos. Having photographed these charming creatures since 2010, Raimond is now an expert at catching them during their most adorable moments. Her most recent images capture a range of resilient red foxes enjoying the winter snow.
“It has been years since I had the chance to photograph foxes in a blizzard,” says Raimond, who jumped at the chance to capture the fairytale foxes. “Foxes have fascinated me for as long as I can remember,” she told us in an interview. Over the years, she realized that no two foxes are the same, and they all have their own very unique personalities. The snow photos capture how each character copes with the cold conditions. From the weary to the brave, each one of the hearty animals take the conditions in stride. As Raimond shares, “No matter how cold it gets, how heavy the snow falls, they just sit, smile and just pridely undergo their fate, waiting for the warmth and sun to come by…”
Raimond hopes that her fox photos will change many people’s negative perception of the animal. “I’d like to show them foxes as seen through my eyes; not as unscrupulous chicken killers and sly thieves,” she explains. “If my photos can make one person realize that an animal is not a coat to wear, not an object to lock up in a cage, nor something you thoughtlessly cut in slices to eat…[my] mission would be accomplished.”
