Photo of the Week: End of Summer
Photographer Matthias Breiter wrote of taking this image: “A young polar bear sat down in a field of fireweed during his patrol along the Hudson Bay coast searching for food.”
Fireweed gets its name because it is often the first plant to grow back after a fire. It blooms from late June until September throughout Alaska’s meadows and woods. Once the top of the plant blooms, it means summer is more or less over! The Ontario resident used a Canon EOS 5D camera.
