Photographer's Note

Dear friends, this weeks I'm with huge amount of work, so I'm not having time to visit your gallery, sorry to much. The title here have to aspect, the first one is to me, to leave work and rest at home. The second is related to the polar bear. I be very sad to see this big bear enclosed in this small pool/cage. The bear to seems suffering swiming from one side to another without stop, a manic-obsessive behavior to me, probably caused by depression and occlusion. Very sad.

Polar Bear Lifestyle
Polar bears undertake extensive migrations across the shores of the Arctic Circle in pursuit of prey. Each bear’s home range is large—between 93 and 186 square miles. The bears prefer to hunt on pack ice, so are very dependent on its seasonal freezing and melting. Sometimes, the bears choose to live on the ice year-round.

Male and female polar bears don’t snuggle for warmth. They come together only for a short time while mating. When raising her cubs, the mother bear will avoid any adult males in order to protect the young. Male bears seek shelter in severe weather, but only female polar bears hibernate in the winter, when they birth their cubs in their icy dens.
