A curious polar bear investigates his photographer

While staying in a town known as Churchill, Manitoba, the polar capital of the world, I was taken on a tundra buggy tour of the surrounding sub-Arctic terrain. After a short period of searching, we found a polar bear wandering in the distance. He soon found his way over to us and careful investigated our vehicle before wandering off into the sub-Arctic tree line.
