As any wildlife photographer can tell you a large part of their job is waiting and hoping the right opportunity presents itself. There was no exception to that rule when wildlife photographer, Florian Schulz, travelled to the frozen Arctic with a film crew while making the environmental documentary, To The Arctic 3D.
As you can see, there’s a lot of finger-crossing involved which inevitably creates a roller coaster ride of emotion. Just when Schulz thought he missed his opportunity due to a malfunction camera, he came across this sole image of a polar bear hiding in the memory card of his camera.
His excitement with the capture nearly moved Schulz to tears and rightly so.
