The Playful Polar Bear Cub
It’s common knowledge that the polar bear population is decreasing. This is due to global warming, changing temperatures, and the melting of ice caps. Human and industrial influence also affects their population, and researchers believe their population may be extinct by 2050. Martin Gregus watched a polar bear playing amongst a field of purple fireweeds in Canada. He strategically placed the camera at ground level to capture the cub at his angle, which helps the viewer relate more to the cub. He clicked the camera’s trigger at the right moment, while the cub was looking for his mother above the blossoms (Brightly).
