Zen Foxes by Nature Photographer Roeselien Raimond Speak Volumes Without Saying a Word
This fox is truly one with nature.
Dutch nature photographer Roeselien Raimond has a knack for capturing foxes when they are at their most relaxed. She has an entire series called “Zen Foxes” that depict them in this happy state.
They smell the fresh air, feel the warmth of the sun on their fur, close their eyes and then it’s a matter of just being there.
Okay, sometimes there isn’t the warmth of the sun on the fur–it doesn’t seem to be a requirement in order for this fox to reach that blissful state!
She discovered that she had to assume some of their laidback nature in order to capture them in this state however. If she is too excited, they sense danger and will not relax.
I’ve always been a bit of a thrill seeker and used to get easily bored. That’s why I bought a camera, to add some extra adventure to my walks. Through the years, I learned that an overly fanatical attitude can kill your pleasure. So, I guess I learned to do as foxes do, just being there and see what might happen. And in the mean time, I just enjoy smelling some fresh air and feeling the sun on my skin.
By having these furry teachers, she has been able to learn to relax more, too and take life as it comes.
And we benefit from her lessons.
