Who else would want to face off against a polar bear?

In recently resurfaced footage from 2018, a photographer is setting up a shot in a seemingly barren landscape when a curious polar bear wanders a bit too close. But, the photographer doesn't seem to bat an eye at the animal, instead, he causally shoos and chases the bear away.

It's truly something you just have to see to believe. Honestly, after all of this, we hope this wildlife photographer still managed to get his shot!

You can view the incredible footage below:

This polar bear didn't retaliate or lash out when it got chased away. Polar bears are known as being "hypercarnivorous" and more often than not, their attacks are often fatal.

What do you think of this brave photographer? Would you be courageous enough to stand up against a massive predator like a polar bear? Comment below.
