Wildlife In Kronotsky Nature

This winter different things happened in the Kronotsky Nature Reserve and here is a set of some of them.  Firstly, due to the eruption of the Kizimen a great part of the Kronotsky Reserve territory got covered with ash – in early February 2011 the volcano sent a column of ash several kilometeres high. It affected the deer wintering grounds, and the snow is now grey and dispiriting.  The furious Kizimen had shortened the winter – the snow mixed with ash melts amazingly fast… And here are photos of the foxes’ mating games.
