Flowerpower

For a few weeks every year the fireweed blooms on the coastal flats near Churchill Manitoba. This is at about the same time the last ice has melted in Hudson Bay, forcing the Polarbears to swim ashore.

And creating this amazing and highly unusual photo opportunity !

Too bad these wonderful creatures get still legally hunted up here....
