The Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus) may be the world’s largest land carnivore, and the largest of all bears, but those facts would never deter me from giving them a loving noogie behind their white furry ears if I ever had the chance! These magnificent creatures are so amazingly cute, and surprisingly agile despite their hefty size! But, sadly, I was advised during my travels in the High Arctic that sneaking up behind a polar bear to give them a noogie was strongly not advised…LOL…and how could I ignore the finger waving warning when the males among them can grow up to 10 feet tall and weigh up to 770 kilograms, WOW!

This moment marked the first time I saw a polar bear in the flesh, and it’s official, I’ve fallen totally in love with the species, and having had the chance to photograph them in the RAW is most certainly a top 10 moment in life for me!
