A mother polar bear and her cub snack on kelp along the shores of Hudson Bay while waiting for the sea ice to return in the fall. Such foods may fill bellies, but don't meet the bear's nutritional needs.

My favourite type of photograph- the one where I think is it a painting? or a photo? 
Another test of the Tamron 150-600mm lens at the wild rookery near Dallas, Texas yesterday....and if you look closely, you can see the crisp eye detail that the lens rendered while I shot this photo with one hand on my monopod (lifted off the ground) and the other operating the camera shutter.  

ISO 2000, shutter speed 1/2000, shooting at f/6.3 on a Nikon D800.

Feedback and re shares always welcomed and appreciated....

Although at opposite poles, both share the common threat of vanishing ice. #polarbear
{Science Sunday} Bi-polar bears? Polar bears live only in Arctic areas that surround the North Pole—not in Antarctica, which surrounds the South Pole. School children often see illustrations of penguins and polar bears together, but this could never happen. In fact, the word arctic comes from the Greek word for bear, and Antarctic comes from the Greek meaning the "opposite of the Arctic" or "opposite of the (great) bear."
