"As a human being it is easy to feel like an unwelcome guest at a dinner table hosted by some of the most fascinating and strong creatures of this planet." Mireille de la Lez, photographer with the Wild Wonders of Europe project, sums up the essence of the human condition in the face of the great predators which are some of the few animals that compete with humans for the top of the food chain. Mireille captured this image on the Svalbard Archipelago, a group of frozen islands between the Barents Sea and the Arctic Ocean.
