So I was happy to see my polar bear image make it onto the cover of this National Geographic / Lindblad brochure for their 2011 cruises to the Arctic. I was a lecturer on one of their voyages to Svalbard last summer, and took this picture of a rather coy polar bear from the bow of the ship. There are a lot of polar bear pictures in the world to choose from, but I'll admit it...I get a kick out of seeing this shot get used.
