King Of The Arctic

Gina Ruttle  (Whalegeek)

Palos Park, United States

Artist's Description

Standing guard over its lean summertime meal of one unfortunate seal, this polar bear awaits the coming of the ice, a time of plenty for the bear.
This was a very lucky encounter to have with a polar bear. Spotting the bear from a zodiac watercraft, our group was able to watch the bear safely from a very close distance as it consumed what was left of its seal meal. Most of the polar bear I saw in the area around Baffin Island were very skittish, apparently because the bear are hunted by native people in this area.
Button Islands (just south of Baffin Island), Nunavut, Canada.

Canon 10D, Tamron 28-75mm lens, shutter 1/1000, f/9.5, exposure bias -0.50, focal length 75mm, ISO 200.
