While photographing polar bears I am always near, or in, a vehicle. This is partially due to the extreme cold. Also, polar bears are very curious and have no fear, and that makes them dangerous. Luckily, this bear isn't paying much attention to me..This polar bear hasn't a care in the world. He just lay back and enjoyed what little sun is left from a short winter day. Soon, the hunt will begin and there will be little time to lounge.
