I expected to see 700mm not 135mm. I guess they were too focused on each other to be interested in you.
Great capture and welcome to the forum.

I've been up there in Churchill to see the Polar Bears and yea, you can get pretty close to the Polar Bears ... but not too close! ;-)

That's a great shot.

BTW, you said "waiting for Hudson Bay to freeze" ... and I see a stretch of cold weather is forecast for Churchill - any guesses on when the Bay will freeze over and the Polar Bears start heading North?

The bay was beginning to freeze as I left on Sunday. Hopefully within the next two weeks.
