Photo Of The Day By Bob Faucher

Photo By Bob Faucher

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Predator” by Bob Faucher. Location: Wapusk National Park, Manitoba.

“A male polar bear runs toward the photographer with only one thing on his mind—food!” says Faucher. “It’s amazing to see these huge bears accelerate to top speed, approximately 18 mph. You may be an artist, a poet, a great scientist, a fine all-around human being, but to a polar bear, you’re meat. Don’t try to run away from a polar bear. They can outrun a human. Seeing an animal fleeing from them arouses their instincts to chase.”

EF 70-200mm + 2x at 140mm. Exposure: 1/320 sec., f/11, ISO 100.
