Summer Polar Bears

This amazing photo was taken by Vancouver photographer Martin Gregus in preparation for his portfolio submission to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

Gregus won the “rising star” portion of the competition for young photographers aged 18-26; he spent an entire summer using a drone to photograph the bears from a distance so that he wouldn’t interfere with them. Given how endangered and precious the polar bears are, his non-intrusive photos are very important.

    1. Hahaha. 🙂 That’s for sure! In his interview with CTV h described having to take a safety rifle along even to go to the bathroom. However, I have seen some very silly people walking right up to black or brown bears …

  1. Polar bears are pretty magnificent animals. I bet the photographer has some other pretty incredible pictures of mama and her cubs given that he spent a whole summer with them.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
