Polar bears are seldom seen outside of the cold Arctic, yet these bears are no strangers to enjoying fun in the summer! These white giants may be seen frolicking in a field of fireweed in a rare set of pictures by Canadian photographer Dennis Fast. The photographs were shot in Northern Canada’s Hudson Bay, near Churchill Wild lodges in Manitoba. In this interview snippet, Fast describes his interest in polar bears.
“It’s not simply their color that makes them a favorite target of mine,” Fast explains to My Modern Met. “They walk slowly and amble about hunting for anything that moves.” They seem to be unconcerned about anything and to be unafraid of everything. It’s not arrogance per, but rather a calm confidence that we frequently admire in people and which transfers well to the polar bear.”
