p.1 #1 · Old Guy Out on the Ice!


This was taken at sunrise -- because polar bear's hair is actually hollow, it really grabs the light and goes golden (captive bears that have a pool to swim in capture the chlorinated water and turn green -- not pretty). This old boy is on ice -- out for a morning stroll. The old males are always pretty scarred up -- just a testiment to the many years of battling for survival with other bears.
All the best, Andrew

Like everything about this shot
The facial expression, the light, the position of his paw.
Great capture!

Got to thank all of you guys for your comments. Funny thing is that I hadn't been thinking that this was one of my better shots -- but your comments have made me rethink that a little. Cheers, Andrew

Wonderful shot Andrew, the lighting, the position of his paw and the shadow of his rear leg make this a beautiful shot.
