The light wasn't quite so kind to you on this one. An interesting behavioural view of these magnificent animals. How right you are about how long these bears have. Severe environmental change often drive evolutionary trends so I'm waiting to see how their behaviour is changing and whether any polar bears find an effective survival mechanism. So much depends on their prey species too.

Always on the prowl and always looking for food. Big beast to keep fed for the winter months when slim pickings are the order of the day.

I really like the patch of light on the bear's back and the curled in paw on the other bear - a lovely touch, and what a pretty face. A poignant pic.
