An arctic fox pup zips across the spongy tundra with a bird wing in her mouth, with her sibling not far behind.
A thick-billed murre takes off down the Arctic runway! Wings beating furiously, the murre appears to “run on the water” for several meters before taking to the air. Photographed in front of the giant bird cliffs at Alkefjellet on the eastern coast of Spitsbergen.
A female polar bear cleans her face after a meal of seal. (But it sure looks like she’s thinking, “Oh no! What have I done?!”)
I’ve never seen so many birds in one place before. Wow.
