Polar bear in Bellot Strait

When crossing Bellot Strait, so narrow and so emblematic of the centuries-long search for the Northwest Passage, we came across this bear which seemed to be interested in mountain climbing (or those bird nests perched halfway up on the so-colourful rock).   Polar bear (Ursus maritimus, Ours polaire). Bellot Strait, Nunavut, Canada. August 2016.
