Thanks, I worked security for the north slope at the time and we were required to stay within sight of bears if we saw one. I was in my truck at the time. He approached to about 30-40 yards. This photo is a still from a video I took.
I saw several Polar bears up there too but never got a respectable photo of one. I saw far more of them when I flew wildlife surveys along the north coast. Polar bears make me nervous, pure carnivores!!
