High European Arctic
Item # 3206
As a polar bear feasted on the remains of a seal, Joanna rushed to change her lens. Losing her position at the ship’s bow, she noticed this dramatic shot to one side. The trail of hefty footprints and blood-spattered ice is devoid of the bear and its prey yet resonates with their presence.
A narrow ribbon of turquoise cuts through the ice at a natural break in the floes – prime hunting ground for polar bears. The bears mainly eat ringed seals, usually waiting for the seals to surface to breathe at holes in the ice then pouncing.
Awarded in the Impressions category at the 52nd Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition in 2016.
