Photos were easy to take since the windows came down (protecting us from the bitterly cold wind off the water). Plus, the big viewing area at the back gave good opportunities for photos and viewing.
Given that the polar bears haven't eaten in a while and that they consider the weather warm (even with a -20C windchill), they are pretty lethargic. However, we did luck out and see some activity. At our first sighting, there were about half a dozen bears around, with two playing on the ice.
For the most part though, the bears we saw were quiet - much like this one near our buggy at lunch time.
But she garnered enough energy to eventually move on.
