When you think about a Polar Bear safari, you think about snow and ice… Correct? Well, did you know you could take amazing Polar Bear photographs during Summer time as well? During the Summer season, Polar Bears descend South of the Arctic circle and spread out in the Canadian grasslands. They tend to conglomerate around the West bank of the Hudson Bay, waiting for the Bay to freeze before going back further North during Winter.
The striking photograph above is quite a different result from the traditional Polar Bear on the ice. In the middle of Summer, the Fireweed start blooming, giving a splendid purple backdrop. You have to time it right though, as the blooming only occurs during a three week-span.
You might be able to appreciate better the Summer landscape with this one. As you may see, it is a colorful view. Drop a Polar Bear in the middle… and voila! Note that this is actually very close to Bay itself.
