Sooo sleepy..........We found this wonderful polar bear in front of Hornbreen (Horn glacier). From this summer on Svalbard.
But the idyllic image is deceiving. It is quite difficult for the polar bear to hunt in/on waters covered with glacier ice. The seals are randomly and difficult to approach and kill when they are lying on small ice-floes. Best for the polar bears is drifting sea-ice. Part of the project: Vilda Norden/ Wild Nordic (www.vildanorden.se)
