Wildlife photographers have a reputation for fearlessness (that borders on foolishness), but this guy takes it to a whole other level.

I couldn’t find much info, but what I DO know is that this is a Russian photographer somewhere in the remote northern wilderness.

The fact that he’s wearing a white cold-weather suit makes it all the more baffling.

Does he get mauled? Check it out.



No, he doesn’t get mauled. Somehow.

It’s a miracle. The fact that this is a juvenile polar bear may have saved him. Polar bears are generally much more aggressive than other bears, and their attacks are often fatal.

The photographer even goes so far as to chase the polar off. Crazy stuff.
