Stittsville resident and 2020 National Photographic Artist of the Year, Danielle Barabé-Bussières, has photographed our beautiful resident fox, Alex, and shares her photographs with us. He is healthy, proud and regal enjoying his environment, and we, his daily sightings. He lives in his wildlife world not knowing he is beloved by our community.
Danielle has been watching and waiting for the perfect moments to capture her images of Alex and bring out the best of Stittsville’s friendly fox. The photos are so alive, one senses you could reach out to pet him. She has caught his self importance brilliantly. It appears as if he is actually daring Danielle to shoot the photograph as he stares her down.
Danielle has also discovered he has a female friend and the discrepancy between the two – a scratch on her nose. Alex is certainly a survivor and now with a partner, we may find baby kits following not far behind on his daily romps.
Enjoy these incredible photographs taken by Danielle!
