Clarke Fjord, Baffin Bay - Distant Polar Bear
We were going to land for a morning excursion pretty shortly and while we enjoyed seeing this Polar Bear moving across Baffin Island in the distance it worried our guides in case it decided to come and eat a passenger or at least savagely rip a limb or two off which wouldn't look good in the publicity material "(almost) All passengers return alive!".
We went a bit further up the coast and they were decidedly twitchy.
