Photo-op by wickedlovelyfaery Photo-op by wickedlovelyfaery
Location: Churchill, Manitoba, Canada
Species shown: Polar bear (Ursus maritimus)
Date taken: 11/12/11
Description: Another picture from the grain dump. This was one of the many bears in the area, nestled amongst some vegetation on a dune. It's amazing how close you can get, but you have to be respectfully fearful - they are not afraid to hurt people, especially since they have gone months without food. The bears at this time of the year are waiting for the sea ice to form so they can go hunt ringed seals. I thought this was a unique shot showing both man and nature.
