What's All The Ruckus?
The resting Polar bear (Ursus maritimus) was aroused by something he could hear or smell that the photographer could not. Within minutes an Arctic hare (Lepus arcticus) came bouncing along. The bear dismissed it offhand but moments later a Red fox (Vulpes vulpes) came along. That got the bear's attention and soon the three animals were following one another across the snow.
