My wife and I have long wanted to photograph polar bears. Val had been several years ago with One Ocean, to see a total eclipse of the sun, but had with her only a small point and shoot, which proved to be totally inadequate for the task. Now she is a competent photographer with a good camera, and she captured some great images. I have photographed bear before, but never these magnificent white guys. We wish the trip had dedicated more time to the ice pack, where the bears are. You gave us great naturalists, superb photography resource people (we LOVE Daisy) and an excellent crew. Thanks for a terrific experience.
