A red-faced polar bear looks like it's being mocked by a laughing seagull.  The 400kg (62 stones) male bear appears to poke its tongue out at the bird as it pulls apart a seal carcass.<br />
<br />
Amateur photographer Marko König watched the 8ft-long animal for 30 minutes in Svalbard, Norway as it ripped into its prey, covering its own face in the seal's blood.  The 44-year-old teacher from Badhersfeld, Germany, was on a 10-day boat trip around the Scandinavian island which has a population of around 3,500 polar bears.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
