Entry Description:

The Polar Bear cubs must gain weight quickly, before the harsh
winter comes, in order to survive. The mother is breast feeding
them with super fat milk every couple of hours while starting to
feed them meat whenever she succeeds in hunting. Still, the sad
fact is that 75% of polar bear cubs will not live to be two years old.
I spent many hours in the deep snow of Svalbard, to get close and
personal with this single mother Polar Bear. It was worth it when
she felt comfortable enough for this amazingly intimate behaviour
in front ofmy camera.
