Polar bear & the walrus, the ones that got away

This polar bear had his work cut out hunting walrus at a haul out in Kvitoya, Svalbard, August 2012. The bear made them stampeed into the water in the hope a calf would be crushed in the rush to escape. Happily for the walrus the bear's plan failed . The walrus bobbed about in the safety of the water & looked like they were having the last laugh. Maybe next time the bear will be luckier.

Location: Kvitoya, Svalbard, Norway
