Artist's Description

Young polar bear demonstrating its fine serpentine profile. Possessing a somewhat flat and relatively small head in relation to its body, polar bears can lower their sinuous profile considerably when hunting seal on the ice.

Interestingly, arctic Native Inuit (Canada) and Inupiat (Alaska) hunters have reported seeing polar bears placing their paws over their black noses in order to blend in with icy surroundings while on the hunt.

Hudson Bay, Churchill, Manitoba, Canada.

July 11, 2009.

Canon 40D, Canon 100-400mm lens, shutter 1/400, f/8.0, focal length 120mm, ISO 400.
