The Lord of the North

I barely slept a wink last night but watching the King of Arctic action was breath taking. I spotted this full grown adult male, estimating about 500 kg. The weather was cold but the wind chill was howling at 60-80 miles / hour made it unbearable. I guess the temperature was about -20 Centigrade, -4 Fahrenheit. The wind was biting; I had a brain freeze but managed to non-stop clicking my camera shutter with frozen index finger. After a couple of minutes of this bone chilling wind, I had to turn my back and let my face unfreeze, but it hurts so well, when I reviewed the image of the scene.
