Arctic Angels

On an arctic expedition from Svalbard, we spotted this polar bear pair of mother and daughter at about 81 degrees north, perched on a mound of ice. We observed them for a few hours giving warmth to each other. Hours later, I still hadn’t had enough of my fill of them. Mamma lifted her head and struck a contemplative pose. She gazed ahead; baby rested her head in companionable silence. Intimate moments between mother and daughter on the soft clouds of ice; it looked like a marshmallow filling in between the blue sky and water. The sublime feeling of contentment wafted through the pure clean arctic air. This proud mother had done her job well; her baby looked well-fed resting in a safe spot
