Now I am home I have had a little more time to PP some of my shots. Here is a mixed bag of some of my favourites.

Thank you for looking.

Fantastic images. I can't wait for my trip too Churchill next year to see polar bears myself.. I can imagine that when I come back I'll do a Svalbard trip too.

Excellent. #5 motivated an audible "wow."

All excellent, but got to agree with previous posters, number 5 is stunning!

Thank you for the positive comments guys. I actually have a shot of the bear in #5 mid air through the jump.

Yep, as noted in the other posts, these are great. Number 5 really stands out and that's not taking anything away from the other shots. Thanks for sharing.

Shot #5 is a great capture. However, my favorite is the walrus shot (#4). The background really completes that shot.

These are awesome! I assume the bear made it but it looks like a close call.

Yeah he made it no problems - I have a few others where he is in the water - but that was later on and he was there for a purpose (trying to stalk a female bear and her cub).
