Dick van Duijn is a photographer from the Netherlands who specializes in capturing the most intimate moments of animals while they frolic freely in nature.

He has a keen eye for telling a story with only his lens and showing the true emotions of animals who think they’re all alone in the great outdoors.

Take a look at some of his best shots.

1. The eye of the tiger.

During the autumn and winter the red fox will grow more fur. This so called โ€˜winter furโ€™ will protect them from the cold. ๐ŸฆŠโ„๏ธ #fox #animal #animalelite #animals_magic #splendid_animals #animals_magic #marvelouz_animals #nature #natures #nature_brilliance #nature_sultans #naturelovers #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeplanet #wildgeography #wildlifeonearth #wildlife_inspired
