Bears on a Berg

NPhoto - - Lightbox - John Rollins

A fe­male po­lar bear and her year­ling perch atop a huge snow-cov­ered ice­berg near Baf­fin Is­land, Canada. To me, the rel­a­tive small­ness of these crea­tures when com­pared to the im­men­sity of the ice­berg in the photo rep­re­sents the pre­car­i­ous­ness of the po­lar bear’s re­liance on the sea ice.
