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.
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.
