Waving polar bear in Arctic greeting

The polar bear cuts a welcoming and slightly camp figure on an iceberg, but tourists would be advised not to get too well acquainted with the ferocious animals.

It was during a cruise through Svalbard in the Arctic that 54-year-old Hans Strand snapped the fame-hungry bear as he came out to wave hello to the excited crowd.

It was third time lucky for Hans who missed the amazing moment the first two times and had to wait for the bear to climb out of his snowy bed again.

The polar bear would be well-advised to meet fellow wave enthusiast Darren the goat.

The billy goat mastered his trick after a group of youngsters who visited his enclosure first waved at him as they left.
