... and I'm sure many other species also. Then Rich got a little excited when he spotted an arctic fox in the distance. He's been saying for months now that he wanted to see one of these little guys, and now that time had arrived. They are even more elusive than the Ptarmagans. Our driver said he'd been doing this job for 8 years and this was only the 2nd time he's spotted an arctic fox at such close range. Usually they just flit past in the distance at ...

Although born on land, the bears spend most of their time at sea and hunt their preferred food of seals from the edge of sea ice, often living off fat reserves when no sea ice is present.

... bears sitting around or sleeping. We have various stops throughout the day for morning tea or lunch...or even a sunrise or sunset shot or a landscape shot. At certain times the colours are just breathtaking and well worth the effort.

As we draw closer to sunset, the weather really starts to close in quickly.....and before we know it, the skies are grey and the wind picks up and the snow begins to fall. It is only a matter of ...
