Picture of the Month - Sun Bear (Helarctos malayanus)

This month's Picture of the Month award goes to Ton Smits for his amazing up close shot of a Malaysian Sun Bear (Helarctos malayanus) in the Khao Yai National Park. It is very rare to catch even a glimpse of Thailand's wild bears and Ton has not only suceeded in that but has also captured a stunning photograph with the bear beautifully framed in grassland.

Thanks for the honour!
I actually thought Richard L Stokes should win this one with his amazing shots of a Leopard in Kaeng Krachan. Though December is approaching...

Haha thanks Ton, yours is a beautiful shot though, I love the way the blackness of the bear contrasts with the light green of the grasses..
