Polar Bears Have Developed A Taste For Photography
Last time I was writing about polar bears, some poor photographers at a public zoo had dropped some Canon gear into a tank. Word must have gotten around that lenses and camera bodies are a tasty treat, as this video shows wildlife shooter Gordon Buchanan from the BBC getting tossed about inside of his plexiglass enclosure by a large female polar bear!
Buchanan was fine, as was his camera equipment, after spending 45 minutes face to face with the polar bear.DailyMail has a full write up with a bunch of screencaps from the video, as well as some other still images of the encounter. [Via LaughingSquid]
