One last shot before I go again - my favorite polar bear at Inglefieldbreen. Polar bears have transparent hair, black skin, and black tongues. #thisarcticlife #polarbear #svalbard #arctic #wildlife #spitsbergen  (at Svalbard)

On our way to the pack ice, less than 600 miles from the North Pole at 80°N 37’ N to search for Polar bears that feed on ringed seals. Pack ice is formed by freezing sea ice and at this point we were the furthest north of any ships apart from ice breakers. #thisarcticlife #packice #northpole #ice (at Svalbard)

The Arctic tern has the longest migration known in the animal kingdom. They migrate between the Arctic and Antarctic regions and have annual roundtrip lengths of about 44,300 miles. They are also infamous for pecking at humans and polar bears, sometimes drawing blood from both. #thisarcticlife (at Svalbard)

We had a very rare sighting of polar bears mating at 80° 10’3 N, close to the North Pole. Only one of our naturalists (Tom, pictured in one of my previous photos) has ever seen this in the wild #thisarcticlife #polarbears #mating #wildlife (at Svalbard)
