Polar Bear and Cub

Donna Carr was visiting Wapuska National Park in Manitoba, Canada, when she came across this mother polar bear with her cub. “Snow was blowing all over and covering the bears,” the Colorado resident writes. “This was during a major blizzard in minus 53 degree F temperatures. The cub was trying to get closer and snuggle with mom.” Carr used a Canon EOS Mark III and a 500mm lens with a tripod.
