Lone Bear

Seemingly unperturbed by the presence of humans and their big camera gears, a female polar bear poses perfectly for a portrait picture beside a Zodiac (inflatable boat) near the shores of glacier bay area at Heleysundet, Spitsbergen. Polar bear; Ursus maritimus, was seen from a Zodiac in the narrow sound between Kükenthaløya and Spitsbergen in Svalbard Norway.
