Polar Bear, Kane Basin, Greenland

Nanuk: Polar Bear, Ursus Maritimus seen from the deck of the Arctic Sunrise in Kane Basin, North west Greenland. The bear's curiosity drew the ship while it was stationary, in sea ice, just after midnight on Sunday morning 2 August 2009. It came very close to the ship, and even looked like it thought about trying to scale the side of the vessel, before playfully rolling about on the ice.This was fifth of six polar bears seen by the crew during the trip.
