Red fox pouncing in snow by Jasper Doest

“SOMETIMES EVERYTHING JUST COMES TOGETHER,” Dutch photographer Jasper Doest says. “I was in Norway on my way to a wildlife park when I passed this red fox in the snow.” Doest enjoyed the scene, but continued on his way. After about a mile, he decided to return. “I took some photographs from the car window, but I didn't like my shooting angle and snuck out to shoot from the front of the car.” That’s when the fox began pouncing. Doest used a Nikon D300 and a 300mm lens.
