Self Reflection of a Polar bear

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Sudhir Alekar

A Polar bear mom and a very curious cub. The photo was taken during a 4 hour drama watched from a small expedition ship. The whole time, a curious Polar bear cub tried to explore many things and mom trying to get the cub to follow her. The cub probably saw something under the ice and and is waiting to look at it.

Location: Woodfjord, North Western Spitsbergen, Svalbard
