Polar Bear

Polar Bear
We sighted this polar bear from our ship and the captain sailed very slowly towards the animal.  The photograph was taken from on board and so you can see we were able to get quite close.  The bear was not unduly bothered by our presence but we backed off quite quickly so as not to cause any disturbance, The bear would occasionally look up and sometime get up - but only to turn over and go back to sleep.
