    so very cute...reminded me of the group Three Dog Night which means it's cold enough to cuddle up with 3 dogs so it must be a 3 polar bear night there

You certainly built up a rapport with them. Looks like they were sitting for a family portrait. Great stuff!
.....
Can we see one of you in your Churchill cold weather gear?

How precious is this? I just love it and you captured it so well. They sure posed for you didn't they? What a treat this must have been. You must be having a heat wave up there because it has been about 2 degrees here and with the windchill close to minus 10. :)

Oh, the expressions and poses are perfect, Karen. At least they're enjoying this cold weather. Just took Bailey, our Golden, out for a walk in the snow, and bbbbrrrrrrrr!!!!! It's cold out there.

Thanks so much for your wonderful comments. It was amazing to watch them walk around, explore, chase each other, and then settle into a rest or nap.

Here is one shot of us in our parkas and boots that Nat Hab supplies for their visitors.

Just a wonderful capture in every way, Karen - exposure, focus and best of all subject and expression. Love the combination of cold (snow and the way they are cuddling) and warm (the feeling this gives me inside) :) Congratulations on the POTD.

What a tender moment you have captured Karen. Congrats on POTD! I live in Saskatchewan, right next door to Manitoba, and I have yet to make it ti Churchill to photograph the polar bears. Definitely on my bucket list. We have a ton of snow this year already.

Just a wonderful Family MT entry, Karen, and one I am thrilled to see again. Added the silver - hope you add a 2nd gold, too.

Karen - how wonderful that this terrific image got a Gold. It wouldn't be a Winner's List if you weren't on it.

Looking forward to a 2013 full of your images. Happy New Year.
