Walking Polar Bear

Churchill Wildlife Management Area, Manitoba, Canada

Walking Polar Bear

Churchill is on Hudson Bay. Polar Bears congregate there during October and November waiting for the ice to freeze so they can go out and hunt seals. We were on a photographers tour, which included three days aboard the polar rovers. Nancy likes to call these vehicles “school buses on steroids” - they have six-foot tires, heating, flush toilets, windows that open like a regular school bus, and a rear outside viewing platform. This was one of the first bears we encountered. When the guide first spotted it, this bear was resting and well hidden behind a rock.

Photographic details: Canon EOS 30D camera w/ EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens set at 250mm. Flash was not used. Camera was on f/5.6 for 1/800 sec (with +1/3 stop exposure compensation) at ISO 400.
