An Arctic fox sits in a meadow of wild flowers in Iceland's Hornstandir Nature Reserve on July 20, 2008.

The reserve is the only place in Iceland where fox hunting is banned, so the animals are less fearful of people. The pictured fox tolerated photographer Orsolya Haarberg following it through the meadow, she said on her blog.

Haarberg's photo is one of tens of thousands of photos collected during 114 missions for the Wild Wonders of Europe project, which ends in July 2009.
