Female snow bunting with a beakfull of maggots to feed to a fledgling that’s still in the nest. After she had circled us for a few minutes, we realised that the nest was in a crack in the rocks, just below our feet. So we moved away, rapidly!

Photographed on shore, near the McGarry Islands , face of Humboldt Glacier, northwestern Greenland, during 2009 Greenpeace expedition to bear witness to Arctic Meltdown on board the Arctic Sunrise.
