There is no surprise to encounter or spot an orange fox in the wildlife. It’s the normal color shade of the red fox. But when it comes to a melanistic fox, you are blessed, guys. If you take out your camera at the right time, you can snap “one-in-a-lifetime” photos. Professional wildlife photographers even desire them.
Recently, a photographer named Sam Gaby snapped stunning photos of a unique fox in Newfoundland. It’s a Canadian red fox with dark stripes running down its back and across its shoulders.
It’s not on incidence. The man spent about two months approaching and gaining the trust of the fox.
“He was unsure about my presence, each cautious step forward was followed by two steps back, and our first encounter didn’t last long, I moved slowly, but by the time I prepared my camera and locked eyes with him, he ran off.”
The melanistic looks so gorgeous in Gaby’s lens. The orange and black fur combines impressively, making the fox stand out in their colony.
Cross foxes can be found in northern North America. They make up about 30% of the Canadian red fox population.
Gaby keeps visiting the fox at sunset for two months. Luckily, it started to relax around him and his camera.
“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.”
