Male Polar Bear sniffing the air
Photographer: Steven Blandin
Location: Seal River, Canada
Story: 
This big male Polar Bear was rolling in the wild berries for a while, when it decided to pop its head up the grass. This photograph was created while the bear started to sniff the air in quest of a new area of interest. My intent was to capture the rim of light created by the back-lit subject.
