Polar Bear amongst the ice floes. A Polar Bear was exploring the ice floes in northern Svalbard. The ice was majestic and a beautiful contrast to the sea. The Polar Bear picked his way through the ice then had to swim to the next ice floe. It gave a big shake of the head and rolled around in the snow and ice. A most impressive encounter with this iconic animal of the north exploring the environment it calls home. Well worth doing all we can to protect and conserve these magnificent animals and the wonderful environment in which they live.
