The Perfect Reason to Be Snap Happy

Talk about being in the right place at the right time..

The best nature photo of the year is this badass polar bear

I was shooting completely blind, pointing the camera and hoping for the best.

I thought I might have a pretty cool shot when she poked her head up less than three feet from the camera. It wasn’t until a week later, as I was riding the train from Churchill south toward Winnipeg that I finally had time to look through all of my digital files. When I saw the frame of her lurking under the water’s surface, staring back up at me, I was completely surprised.

What more encouragement do you need to grab your camera and snap away?? The perfect, award-winning shot could be made on accident. 🙂
