Polar bears 1, Photographers 0. 7 shooting days left.
-46 degrees, we set up in front of a den at about 9:30a.m. and waited and waited and waited.
I did a work out of 100’s (my clients would know all too well what that isJ)That was the first time I ever worked out that hard in the arctic. The rest of the time was spent telling lies and bad jokes. One of the vans went to another polar bear den. At some point in the afternoon, a mother polar bear popped out her head for about ten seconds, sniffed the air and went back down. Apparently two photographers got a shot. Shows they are thinking about coming out, so that is a good sign. Every year we come a long way to get pictures of polar bear cubs so hopefully we will have better luck tomorrow.
Sorry no pictures yet, but check out the polar bear images from 2010 and 2011.
