Artist's Description

A black-tongued polar bear eating what’s left of a seal it caught during lean summer months on the Button Islands, located in the Canadian arctic. Until the ice forms again, polar bears are left high and dry on whatever land they end up on after summer break up of pack ice. While they can swim for a hundred miles or more, polar bear will wait on land till the ice returns in the fall. In the meantime they will scavenge whatever they can or take a seal unlucky enough to come near where this polar bear lurked.

Button Islands (south of Baffin Island), Nunavut, Canada.

July 24, 2006.

Canon 10D, Tamron 28-75mm lens, shutter 1/750, f/8.0, focal length 75mm, ISO 200.
