Silver Glow. Polar Bears at Sundown, Churchill, Canada by 


Polar bear, Ursus maritimus, which means “sea bear”. (Featured in Amazing Wildlife & Others.) Polar bear mother and her cub walking on a frozen lake in the Tundra at sunset. They are back-lit by the setting sun creating a silver glow around their bodies. This bear has not had anything to eat for about 8 months. She is waiting for the ice to freeze on Hudson Bay so that she can hunt for Harp Seals. Adult female polar bears weigh from 330 to more than 550 pounds, 150 to more than 250 kilos. The cub is 10-11 months old & still breast feeding. Polar Bears are endangered due to global warming. It is estimated that the Churchill population will be unviable in 30 years, and it is the largest single Polar bear population in the Arctic.
