Happy World Wildlife Day!

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Not Worth the Effort” by Bob Faucher. Location: Wapusk National Park, Manitoba.

“A snoozing polar bear (Ursus maritimus) evaluates an arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) as it saunters past to determine if the energy lost in chasing the fox down is worth the limited energy gain if he catches it,” says Faucher. “The insouciant fox already knows the bear won’t make an attempt to catch it. He knows he can outrun the bear.”

EF 70-200mm @ 180mm. Exposure: 1/180 sec., f/16.
