Another action in this love story was when the mother smelled something she immediately raised her head pointed her nose up and in the direction but without disturbing the cub was essentially teaching him the skill he would later need to use for hunt and or protection. Captured in profile for this presentation at same setting as previous except at 1/200 sec.

Thank you all for commenting, Kay, Nancy, John, Jayne and Karen. Polar bear mothers are the most loving and protective and informitive of all the species to their cubs. Would be great if humans took some lessons, but oh well It will not be long before we are endangered as well.

Hi Mary, thanks for visiting and commenting, I appreciate your evaluations always. I'm not much at manipulation as you might have noticed but love to capture it in the camera right at the moment. A dinasour I guess but the opportunities are there. Alway appreiciate your evaluation of my work.

Hi Emile, love your polar bear images....you were so lucky to spend two weeks there. I've been to Churchill and up to Barter Island in Alaska for polar bears....leaving again this week for Alaska hoping to get more.

Hi Emile;
Amazing capture.
Your whites are practically perfect...heck they are perfect. The tandem position of the two really gives this image visual impact.
Thanks for sharing these wonderful images.
