Photo of the day

Well, two posts so far today and I’m still sticking with the animal theme because I haven’t used the Telegraph’s animal photos of the week gallery in a while:

This polar bear was left looking red-faced at a grizzly scene while eating its prey. The massive predator was tearing into the carcass of a walrus it had killed and in a savage frenzy covered its face in the animal's blood. It was spotted by the photographer Franco Banfi who had an up close and personal encounter with the ferocious beast when his sailing boat became stuck in the ice near the polar bear. As he waited for the ice to melt and free his boat, he snapped these images of the bear on the Prins Karls Forland island, Svalbard, in the Arctic Ocean.
