Polar Bear At Ease: Signed and Numbered
Norbert Rosing

It was a gray and mild day on the shores of Hudson Bay; the freshwater lakes around Churchill had just frozen. This polar bear came from a distance having just played with another bear. Overheated, he came down to the frozen lake and put himself to ease. And so the title of the images was created— “Polar Bear at Ease”. He was resting in this ideal position for only a few minutes before one of his paws moved out of position and he got up again.
