Be Aware, Arctic's King Crossing!

I've been in Svalbard 4 years ago on a cruise during the summer time, i did manage to see the Polar Bear but from a distance and I was quite high on an icebreaker ship what make me to feel a bit artificial with my pictures. Since then, I promised to myself that ton he next time I'll meet largest predator on earth, it will be on the ground, on the eye level and this is what happened!
