POLAR BEAR MOTHER & CUB ON SEA ICE
Polar Bears (Ursa maritimus) on sea ice off the sub-arctic coast of Hudson Bay, Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. Bears come to the coast of Hudson Bay in Fall waiting for the ice to freeze, and looking for a careless seal or for a dead whale to wash up.
This mother looks pretty skinny and must be waiting anxiously for the ice to expand out to sea so that she can begin to hunt for food for herself and her cub.
