I have just started to really look at my images from the Arctic ( giving a lecture ) It is surprising that digitally we only pick what we consider the best and leave the rest in our folders. After yesterdays image here is another of the same time. This Polar Bear has a scrap of whalemeat and bone, every piece is nutrition for the long spells without food. Again in this desolate landscape the bear stands out, quite grey too. Taken from the Zodiac in rubbish weather ( rain Sad)

I love to see these arctic animals against the expanse of their sparse habitat. I'm in awe of their skills to survive.

Scoring a barren landscape for food, for life. This is brilliant Ron, so evocative of the struggle for survival.

It does look so totally desolate and amazing that such a large animal manages to find sustenance at all there.
An image that most of us can only dream about, so marvellous to see such through your eyes (and lenses, of course).

The winter white is softened by foraging in the sand and earth, a l title camouflage in the summertime to keep the bear less visible to it's prey.

Such a barren landscape - but beautiful in its own way. Is that white head poking up behind the bear a gull? Wish I could see this huge - it's a spectacular image and commentary on survival.

Fantastic image... I must admit I hadn't looked at your PF for a LNG time as there was nothing public in there but I am really impressed with those two, great composition and a wonderful impression of the harsh environment. More of this please. Far for interesting !'''
