Polar bear bub waves at photographer


Photographer Greg Harvey captured this lovely photo of a polar bear cub who appeared to take quite a shine to the camera.

The 43-year-old wildlife photographer took the shots while he was in Wapusk National Park, Manitoba, Canada in March this year.

The polar bear is seen coming out of her den and waving at Greg.

The self-taught photographer has questioned whether she is actually waving - but that's the interpretation we prefer!

Greg, who lives in Alberta, Canada, is a self taught photographer that enjoys capturing anthropomorphic images.

"The funny thing about anthropomorphism is it can happen at any time. People often ask about the story behind the images. Truthfully, the stories of any interest are normally what happens behind the scenes in a strange country," adds the photographer.
