Arctic Fox with Eider ducks egg

By hibbz  
I have to be honest this was taken a while ago but I was giving a talk to a camera club. Realising I had some good photos that I hadnt done anything with, so here you go. We had got off our yacht to stretch our legs on Kinnvika Research Settlement, its a fascinating area with abandoned wooden buildings. I was photographing a Svalbard poppy with my macro lens, when I spotted this Arctic Fox coming towards us. I quickly changed my lens to a 70-200 this fox walked right past us in fact it got too close at one point, what made it more special is that it had an Eider ducks egg in its mouth but not for the duck though. Thank you for your votes & Awards. Jenny
