DEBBY THE OLDEST POLAR BEAR IN THE WORLD

I was privileged to photograph Debby on July 17, 2007, just a bit more than a year before her death. As you can see from my portfolio of photos, Debby could still be quite frisky in the water. She seemed to enjoy shaking her head after a dive and sending water flying in all directions. The need for a new set of dentures didn't keep her from smiling obligingly for my camera.
