Two Bears

25 June 2019

Frigg was checking nests on Storholmen, while I was guarding her safety, when I discovered two bears on Juttaholmen, the island in the background. Can you see the white dot on the island?
The zoom on my camera makes them visible.
The next day at 03:00 in the middle of the night (with 24 daylight the night is not dark), the two polar bears, a mother and a two-year-old cub came very close to our station. They were chased by a flare. We did not wake-up.
