Polar Bear Day

This and many of my works will soon be for sale on my website https://www.regiseyeonnature.com

Barter Island, Kaktovic, Alaska in September. It is the month when the locals start their hunt for a pair of bowhead and / or other whales. Their meat is consumed by the people and the remains end up on the famous bone pile. The picture shows a 3-year-old male polar bear looking for those remains. Although we also searched intensively, both at sea and on land, this was the only polar bear we saw during our stay. In the left background part of the remains of the whale bones are visible.
