Owed To Nature

Boston, United States

Artist's Description


I’m donating 50% of profits from all sales of my Cape Churchill images to Polar Bears International.

Ursus maritimus, Cape Churchill, Wapusk National Park, Manitoba, Canada
A child’s curiosity is essential in spurring them on to learn by observing and mimicking their mothers. Polar bear cubs are no exception. With their extremely well-developed sense of smell – they can sniff out seals buried in snow up to 1 mile (1.6 km) away – they need to learn as much through their nose as they do their eyes. This little guy is eager to learn all about new smells. Mum, on the other hand, isn’t quite ready for his next lesson. She just needs to wash her hands.

Shot using:
Canon EOS Digital Rebel (the original!)
Canon EF75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM lens
