Where are the polar bears?

My beloved Lewis has just returned from 2 weeks in northern Sweden, Norway and Finland–inside the Arctic circle–where he has been measuring carbon fluxes (or something like that). He brought back some photos– I was rather excited, expecting lots of floating icebergs and roaring polar bears. Well take a look for yourself:

They could have been in Wales! Not a polar bear or iceberg in sight! But he did bring this picture of this lovely mangey reindeer…

I just love the antlers– they look sort of fuzzy and soft..
