This was taken in 2009 in Churchill from one of the tundra buggies. It was a cold, beautiful, sunny day.

 

It was during this trip that I vowed to never go to a cold place again and it wasn't even that cold. :)

 

Back in the day of the Canon 40D with a Canon 500mm f4 lens.

We got them coming and going...somewhere in the Northwest Passage of the Canadian Arctic August 2013.

Oops I didn't realise there was a topic just for polar bears. In any case, here is my contribution! Taken in Churchill, Manitoba :)

The first pic is the best pic of a polar bear I was able to snap---of course I wish the polar bears had swam around the boat doing water aerobics (which has happened, they can be quite curious) but I was perfectly content watching them through binoculars caring less about the ship and working the pack ice to find a napping seal. None of these are going to make it into National Geographic but trying to keep steady on the deck of a ship, find the polar bear in your binoculars and then re-find it in your camera lens ain't easy all the while your eyes are teary due to the wind coming off the ice! We spotted a total of six bears, some ringed seals, walruses and reindeer in the Svalbard Islands. It was really beautiful:
