Churchill

In November, 2009 we traveled to Churchill in Manitoba, Canada with Natural Habitat Adventures, another excellent group. (We have since gone to China with them, and now have a trip scheduled to the Galapagos Islands.) In October and November the polar bears congregate around Churchill, which is on Hudson Bay, waiting for the ice to freeze so they can hunt seals. There we photographed them from one of the polar rovers. Nancy was mostly using her Canon EOS 30D DSLR with a Canon 100 - 400 mm image stabilized telephoto zoom lens.
