The most symbolic arctic animal is the polar bear, mostly used today as "the symbol" for global warming and endangered animals. I photographed this cute polar bear walking along the Hudson Bay shoreline in northern Manitoba, Canada.
In this cute pose the polar bear almost looks like a teddy bear with its cute ears, but in this moment when I photographed this beautiful arctic animal it probably thought more about eating me and not really about playing with me.
The polar bear is a top predator and is extreme dangerous to people and never should be trusted, no matter how cute they look.
