Polar Bear

This morning when we were having breakfast a polar bear came walking in to our station. i grabbed my camera and started taking pictures and video.

our dogs didn't notice anything, even when i started shooting flares out of the window... thanks dogs!
the first picture is taken at Noret, a bit of new ice has started to form, but it's not strong enough so we didn't go out there. the bear broke through the ice several times. this was when we scared it away.

this picture is taken from the window of the tower, with the polar-bear 20-30 meters away:

isn't life in the arctic great?
