Wildlife Photography - Polar Bear Photo Tour, Day Eight

Still on my Polar Bear tour in Hudson Bay. Weather started out rather 'mild' but the winds are picking up and the temperatures are dropping. The bay should start to freeze up in about a week and the bears will start to head out to hunt seals.

So far, this year is about the same as last. Encounters with females and cubs, sub adults and adult bears are all normal. Have not come across any emaciated bears so far, which may be a good sign but there was at least one tragic death I know of. A Polar bear mom with cub was accidentally killed when someone fired a banger warning shot at her. Her cub was sent to the zoo for care.

Came across a decent Aurora Borealis the other night but I am a novice when it comes to photographing the heavens. Very little time to look at the photos. Just a few pics to update my tour and stay in touch. Will be going out a few more times on the tundra before heading home.
