  1. The agility of the polar bear is amazing. I tend to think of bears as lumbering around, but can see that my preconceived ideas are all wrong. This whole series of shots has been absolutely stunning.

  2. Cool shot. Really the depth feeling you have here with all the different elevations.

  3. Wow, exciting series, but even more so for the guillemots 😉
