Bear With Me

I just had to reprint this brief photo essay that I just got in my inbox from Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy. I doubt he'll put it up on his own blog, so I feel OK in stealing it from him.
Polar Bear: I Come in Peace
Stuart Brown describes Norbert Rosing's striking images of
a wild polar bear coming upon tethered sled-dogs
in the wilds of Canada's Hudson Bay.

The photographer was sure that he was going to see the end of his dogs
when the polar bear wandered in, but ...

The Polar Bear returned every night that week
to play with the dogs.

Peace on Earth, Good Will To Men (and Polar Bears.)
