Prelude To A Kiss

Gina Ruttle  (Whalegeek)

Palos Park, United States

Artist's Description

Canon 7D, Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS lens, shutter 1/640, focal length 400mm, f/4, +1.7 exposure compensation, ISO 400

Below is a video I created of the polar bears of Kaktovik, Alaska….

During a quiet intermission from play fighting two polar bear cubs appear to be about to kiss. A second later they were back to massacring each other with gusto!

Currently polar bears (Ursus maritimus) are listed by the IUCN as Vulnerable.

Threats to their existence include hunting and loss of habitat.
