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.
