Photo of the Month September 2020 – Full Speed

The photograph of the month for September 2020 comes from one of my winter snow mobile expeditions to Svalbard to photograph Polar Bear on the frozen sea ice. This large male Polar Bear is at full speed on the ice at Monbukta as it chases after a nearby female. Capable of explosive bursts of speed covering around 100 metres in just seven seconds the Polar Bear is the only living marine mammal with powerful, large limbs and feet that allow them to cover kilometres on foot and run on land.
