Top Shot: Winter Survival | Photograph by Eric Gurwin (@eyelaser)
An arctic fox carries the last remains of a caribou carcass in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. #YourShotPhotographer Eric Gurwin writes, “A harsh winter means tough times for an arctic fox. Finding the last remains of a caribou carcass may mean the difference between life and death. Ironically, wolves which may be a threat to the fox’s survival may leave just enough of the caribou to sustain the fox until prey becomes more abundant.” This photo was selected for April 25, 2018 Daily Dozen.
