Polar bear sniffing

In summer we don’t only see the bears on ice. Sometimes they’re standing on solid ground. This bear was photographed on the island of Edgeøya in Svalbard. We hope to return to this location in June this year on our next Arctic photo workshop.

Another sleeping Crabeater

Some of these Crabeater Seals are white, some brownish, some grey. This one was doing its best to ignore us as we drifted nearby in our Zodiac. Taken near Danco Island in Anarctica’s Errera Channel during our 2016 Antarctic photo workshop. Click on the image for a larger version.
