Florian Ledoux  Award Winning Wildlife Photographer Drone Photographer Of The Year 2018 Grand Prize Drone Photography 2017 The story in National Geographic :

I am so excited to announce you that next month I am going on a new wildlife reportage in Antarctica on a sailboat for an expedition of a month on the west peninsula of this white continent! No threats of polar bear there but a lot of cute penguins to meet with immense landscapes covered by ice. Can't wait to get there but before that, a month a preparation will be intense. I need to have everything well organized, buy some new photo and video gears, think about every small detail that will make the difference, and absorb as much as I can of knowledge about the area and conservation issue. ⠀

Can you guess where I am going this winter? Have you ever been there? ⠀
This place has for a long time been a dream in my head... Next month it becomes true with a new sailing expedition for a great reportage! ⠀
I will announce soon, where this crazy expedition will take me, but first let me buy some brand new photo/video gear!⠀

While approaching a big rock in the fjord of west Iceland, I spot more than 25 seal on it sunbathing. The owner of the local farm told me they are everyday here! One of them quickly jump into the water.⠀

When the hunt is good and the polar bear are healthy, they only eat the skin and the fat leaving the meat for the others. A bear will assimilate 84% of the protein and 97% of the fat it eats. Polar bears need an average of 2 kg (4.4 lb.) of fat per day to obtain enough energy to survive. A ringed seal weighing 55 kg (121 lb.) could provide up to eight days of energy for a polar bear.⠀

The river in the glacier! While flying above the fast retreating glacier Myrdalsjokull, I saw this incredible river coming directly out of the ice tunnel in the glacier and creating a waterfall in the glacier moulin, at the most unexpected place!⠀

The power of the wild beast hunting for seal! In fall, a seal cuts ten to fifteen breathing holes in the ice. Polar bears attack by waiting for seals to breathe at the openings. They locate them with their powerful sense of smell and wait for the seals to emerge. Polar bears have to be smart and patient because the wait can be long—sometimes hours, or even days.⠀

The great migration! Thousand beluga whales migrate south as the ice pack advances in the autumn. Soon the white kingdom will close its doors for the harsh winter that only a few species can face.⠀
