Photographer Captures the Incredible Beauty of Wild Fox In Remote Area of Northeast Russia

Fox in Snow and Heather

Ivan Kislov, a photographer based out of Magadan, Russia, has put together a gorgeous photo series that visually captures the the incredible and complicated beauty of the wild red fox that live in the remote Chukotka Peninsula in the north-eastern area of Russia. Ivan first came to Chukotka as a mining engineer and found that his hobby of photography and his fondness for “inaccessible places, raftings, just walking tours” gave him the perfect opportunity to shoot the wildlife in the area. In an interview with Bored Panda, Ivan explained why he focused mostly on foxes.

Though he takes pictures of everything from bears and reindeer to wolves and stoats, Kislov says the foxes are often very willing models: “Foxes are curious and can come very close, and I shoot with wide angle and telephoto lenses.”

Daring Ferret Falls Short on Making a Successful Jump From the Desk to the Ironing Board

An adorably daring ferret, clad in a glow stick bracelet, fell very short on making a successful jump from the desk to the ironing board and landed safely on the floor with only her pride slightly injured. According to her human, Marek Riha, the desk was a bit slippery, the ferret put the bracelet on herself and he feels bad about laughing at her fall.

I didn’t realize, it’s slippery. She tried to get to the window. When she got on the table I saw
that trying to jump on the window. (distance about 1metr) so I moved closer the ironing board. The rest of the story you already know. That shining bracelet, she put on herself. Such kind of crashes is for ferret well known. People may think I behave badly to this ferret but who knows ferrets knows what’s going on. But I have to apologize for my sadistic laughter ;)

While her dignity may have been bruised, the little ferret didn’t appear to lose any sleep whatsoever.
