Taken towards the later part of the day, this Polar Bear said his farewell and moved off, back onto the forming pack ice.

Thanks Octavio, it's so easy to shoot with long lenses, but refreshing to use other lenses providing a different perspective and be more inclusive.

cheers
Steve

The inclusion of the habitat, especially the distant horizon and sky, adds so much to this one Steve. Lovely image!

This would be a gorgeous landscape shot even without the bear! The bear couldn't be much better placed in the scene than it is. Love this.
