Trying different things

When you’re that close to a Polar Bear you first start to make close ups. But if it stays a little longer, you start to think about doing different things. Things like the mirror image in the previous post, but also things with different lenses, like wide-angle or even fish-eye. When I made some pictures of the pack ice with my fish-eye lens last year I got some remarks that it would have been even nicer if a bear would be in the picture. Well, easier said as done, as the bear should be really close to me to make that work. Well, this time it did work! A bear in its natural habitat on top of the world!
