>> carefully, as a lot of it was at quite a distance. We saw a couple of 
>> bowhead wales, some narwhal, walrusses, various seals, muskox as well as 
>> many of the infamous 'muskrocks' which look very similar at great 
>> distance. Also a large variety of birds.
>> Most of my wildlife shots were taken with the 100-400 Panasonic-Leica 
>> zoom which was an excellent choice for this trip. My next most used lens 
>> was the 12-40/2.8 Olympus, then the 7-14 Panasonic and last, mostly 
>> because of insufficient reach, the 40-150/2.0 Olympus. I took about 7500 
>> shots on this trip. A UV filter was kept over any lenses that were out 
>> when we were in the zodiacs, and the equipment was rinsed off in the 
>> shower after any noticeable salt water splashing. Everything worked 
>> perfectly.
>> Contrary to Africa, where I have taken full frame shots of lions with a 
>> 35mm wideangle, I wouldn't try that on a polar bear.

So many layers of wow both in the location and in this set of photographs.

That long panorama qualifies as spectacular.
