A young male polar bear walking across the frozen ground, Alaska.
Image Order Number 12_oct12922.jpg
Fall brings the first freezing temperatures, snow and ice to the arctic habitat of the polar bear. This young male polar bear (Ursus maritimus), looks cautiously toward my camera as he walks across the recently formed ice over the edges of the Beaufort Sea, in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
