What a Big Mouth You Have~

The better to growl at you,

besides it’s hot for a polar bear, and I pant and get grumpy when it’s hot.

I’ll growl at the dirt if I want to.

Whose gonna stop me?

Baby Bear, like a pint sized Narcissus, practices panting and growling at his reflection. Someday, he hopes to grow huge and growl as fiercely as Mama Bear, but for now, all he can do is practice.

What big teeth,

huge tongue,

and what fine bears you are!

Your sleepy cub is quite handsome,

and your home is lovely too!

Cheers to you from the awesome bears in their stunning Hudson Bay home~

  1. Aren’t the magnificent ? You do get around my dear 😀 Look at those teeth !! Mama bear is rather ginormous isn’t she? I’ve seen video taken from with-in a big tractor/bus and the bears standing on hind legs to look into the windows ! I hope these two stay safe and healthy xK

    • Ahhh, thank you very much. There is nothing better than an uppity polar bear cub giving lip to momma ก็็็็็็็็็็็็็ʕ•͡ᴥ•ʔ ก้้้้้้้้้้้


  2. My husband just explained to me where Hudson Bay is, and you were really North taking these pictures, Cindy! Whoa! What a sight to see! I couldn’t even begin to imagine all the emotions you experienced as you both watched these bears and photographed them. Fantastic pictures! Amazing!!

  3. Beautiful bears. I just came back from Mass. – the little lake across from where we were staying had three white swans. But I really couldn’t get close enough.

    (In this day and age it is hard to know anyone without disease of some sort – I think of them all. And thank you for thinking of me – More cryptic news as it happens.)

    • You have a smart son. Viewing sharks in a cage has just always struck me as a dumb adrenaline activity, especially since I have swum, not on purpose, in the ocean where there are sharks, constantly, since I was a kid.
      Safe viewing with polar bears is distant viewing, with 1200 mm lens.
      Love to you Brenda, and to your son.


            • No I went with a guide and my husband and son. The guide named Deb was an expert and highly skilled. We were in very safe hands. It is not safe to go out on your own in polar bear country. It will get both you and the bear killed.

              • How lovely for you. What an adventure!! So do you guys use guides a lot? You have so many excellent photos from tons of exotic places that you are either really good at researching the out-of-the-way spots or you pick great guides. 🤩 Either way, kudos!👏👏👏


                • We don’t usually use guides much, not even in Africa where we self drove twice, but in Kruger which is a national park tailor made for this. In Churchill though, in polar bear and beluga season, we definitely needed a guide. She was multi-talented, adept at piloting zodiacs and finding bears for safe observation and super knowledgeable about the area.
