Polar Bear

If you go to Svalbard, you have one major sighting to tick off – a polar bear.  We were delighted to see several on our trip, some at a distance but two at very close quarters.  This huge bear was spotted on the ice at Storoya, on the very north of the islands, as we were cruising on zodiacs.  As we approached the ice, the bear approached us and posed for some great shots.
