Photo: Polar Bear Environment Churchill Manitoba

Atop the rocks near the Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba, a Polar Bear sniffs around for any unwanted visitors to his natural environment.

As if standing on the top of the world, this Polar Bear appears to be scoping out the landscape of the Churchill Wildlife Management Area to see what may lurk around his kingdom. This picture shows how free and at peace a Polar Bear is in his natural environment near the Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba when the tundra begins to take on its winter chill.

The Polar Bear has spent months resting in order to conserve his energy for the hunt for his winter meals and now that the tundra starts to freeze, the Hudson Bay will not be far behind. Once the Hudson Bay is solid enough, the Polar Bear will trek to the shores and set out onto the ice in search of some ringed seals.In the backdrop, the Hudson Bay shows its blue coloring as the trees stagger themselves across the landscape between the large boulders. ... continue below the picture...

A true paradise for this Polar Bear, except he knows that things are a little out of sort with photographers within close range.Any chance you get to capture a moment such as this with a Polar Bear surfacing in his natural environment, having the stunning scenery in the background and the arctic tundra begin to freeze, consider yourself lucky.

Snap your shot and stay clear of the Polar Bear so that he can continue on his way throughout the tundra without an overload of human interference.Bear watching in Churchill, Manitoba is usually done with tundra buggy tours and people are kept inside as wildlife can be very unpredictable. You are in their environment and respect should be given to these massive mammals when visiting the Churchill Wildlife Management Area in Manitoba, Canada.
