This bear has just gotten out of the water. We think of polar bears as being white, and sometimes they are. But the fur can be discolored by accumulated dirt by being on land. Oils accumulate in the hair and give the bears a yellow color. And the lighting affects the color of the bear. Early morning backlighting is causing this bear to glow.
