Churchill, Canada
A polar bear cub snuggles in behind mom, as she stands up and surveys her the tundra surroundings.
The mother bear stood up so abruptly that it was difficult to fit her in frame with the 600mm telephoto. I quickly switched the orientation to portrait and rapidly took several steps back. I stopped the aperture down slightly and placed an AF square directly on her chest, thereby ensuring optimal depth of field. Had she pointed her nose skywards, a piece of her would have been clipped.
