Leap of Faith

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Richard Renn

On a cruise around Spitsbergen Island, the ship's captain spotted a young polar bear, so he stpped the ship. The bear slowly and gradually made his way over the pack ice to investigate this intruder/possible meal. As he made his way over the ice, he had to jump from ice sheet to ice sheet. When he got closer, I caught him and his partial reflection in mid-jump.

Location: Spitsbergen Island, Svalbard Archipelago, Norway
