A curious polar bear cub leaves its mother to examine my truck. Let your eyes wander around the frame, follow the tracks to discover this cub's mom laying down along the vegetation line, and observe the darkening cloud bank growing over Hudson Bay to the northwest.

This young bear was no more than 4 feet away from me and my truck door. Taken with an extremely wide angle lens (14mm) on a full frame camera, the perspective is difficult to grasp in the photo. But I chose to use this lens, instead of a bigger telephoto, to give a sense of scale and placement within the polar bear's environment on the tundra.
Canon EOS 6D, Canon 14mm F/2.8L II, 1/500s, f/8, ISO400, handheld Post Processing done using Lightroom 5.7.1
Output Sharpening done using Photoshop CS6 Extended v13.0.6
