Roy Mangersnes - Polar Bear at home

Further north then I have ever been before we encountered this beautiful Polar Bear. Perhaps he never saw a ship before and came close to check us out. After a short while he lost his interest and headed back into the open ocean ice. I never get tired of spending time with this icon of the Arctic. I hope I will see him again some day soon, and preferably in dense ocean ice.

Location: 83 degree north, Svalbard
