Hello Paul, what a super action shot you have here.
Nice and sharp - and he's really flying.
I must go look at your last photo now.
Thank you

Hi Paul,
A nice capture of this beautiful polar bear. Very well composed and well timed with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Paul,
What an action, a flying polar bear. Great shot.
Super again!

Hoi paul,
Na je eerst foto verwacht je toch een groter vlucht moment, maar je kunt zien dat het ijs niet groot genoeg was om de afzet goed onder controle te houden. Het lijkt nu net of het alleen maar slechter wordt en de beer ook echt nat gaat worden. Toch is dit ook weer een super foto en een super moment. Ik kan niet wachten op de volgende en als je klaar bent ga ik de hele reeks op high speed bekijken om dan een animatie van de sprong te zien.

Hallo Paul,
Prachtig vervolg op de vorige foto. Zo te zien houdt hij het niet droog. Fantastische timing en scherpte. Mooie natuurlijke kleuren. Ben benieuwd naar het vervolg.

Hello Paul,
Wow, a Polar Bear in flight - you would have thought that he'd sink like a stone but they're incredibly agile. Brilliant and a very well-timed capture.
TFS and have a nice weekend, Ulla

What amazing timing, Paul!
This is a fantastic shot of this polar cub in mid-jump, down to the water splash in his wake.
I just like his pose so much, with his front legs extended straight out.
Great light exposure (which I am sure was not easy!)
Just a delight. TFS. ; )

Wist niet dat ze ook kunnen vliegen...
Hij vindt het blijkbaar best leuk...
Fantastische ijsberen collectie. Zeg maar...berencollectie.

  • Great

jestem po mega wrażeniem

A wonderful shot of this Svalbard treasure. I recently did an Arctic expedition and saw 32 polar bears. However, I have a lot to learn to get photos this beautiful! I would appreciate your looking at my photos and telling me what I can do to improve. Many thanks. Eloise
