Polar Bear Pictures

A year ago, as a test trip as part of a Canadian wildlife photography tour company that I'm launching in 2010, I visited Churchill, Manitoba along with a few colleagues. We braved -40 temperatures and five days of blizzards, but got some absolutely fabulous opportunities with the polar bears.

This is the first sneak peek at the polar bear pictures (the best are yet to come!). Enjoy!
