Arctic Hunter

Gina Ruttle  (Whalegeek)

Palos Park, United States

Artist's Description

Canon 7D, Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS lens, shutter 1/1600, focal length 400mm, f/4, +1.3 exposure compensation, ISO 800

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

This polar bear was on a mission. I’m not sure what captured this bear’s attention but it strode toward the little boat I was on with purpose. I was grateful to be safely ensconced on my little boat rather than a tasty seal resting nearby.

Currently polar bears (Ursus maritimus) are listed by the IUCN as Vulnerable. Threats to their existence include hunting and loss of habitat.
