Title: Curiosity

Subject: Polar Bear

Location: East Coast of Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada

Story: “I was photographing wildlife from the bow of the National Geographic Explorer when two polar bears approached the ship. The second bear chased off the first and cautiously came closer and closer to us, before apparently deciding that we were neither a threat nor edible. Then he turned around and left. This shot is not cropped.”

Camera: Nikon D300AF VR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED lens; 1/1000 sec at f/16; ISO 800.
