A male polar bear climbs precariously on the face of a cliff, above the ocean, in northern Russia, to feed on seabird eggs. The bear was marooned on land and not able to eat seals, its normal prey, because of melting sea ice that had receded far to the north because of global warming. Jenny E. Ross of the USA won first prize for this photo in the Nature Singles category of the recent World Press Photo Contest.
