Photo of the Day

Greeting the Sunrise

“The Arctic featured some spectacular sunrises, and getting a polar bear in this position was a special moment,” writes Your Shot photographers David and Shiela Glatz. “This large female was waiting for the sea to freeze over, so she could head out and hunt for food.” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
