Life on the Tundra

Young Arctic Hare
Many of the baby animals on the tundra have instincts to freeze and blend with the boulders and vegetation.
Overflowing nest of Lapland Longspur chicks.
Perfectly mute.  They'd be easy prey for a fox if they made a peep.
We saw this thing swimming in the river and didn't know what it was at first.  It looked like a seal, but we were 35 km inland.

It turned out it was a fox.  Not even the water is safe from this little jerks anymore.  Stay vigilant.
