Congratulations to Natures Photo for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 12 votes - View Previous Winners


Seeing these beautiful mother polar bears with their three month old cubs in the wild is, to this point, the most exciting nature and photography experience that I have had. Here are a few more images of these awesome animals from this years trip.

David...these are outstanding and trying to take white on white and still get that great detail is not easy. Seeing these cubs in the wild especially interacting with their mother must have been more than special....the glimpse into their private life at this young age is quite a privilege. One day I would love to have the opportunity to see these amazing predators.

Hi David...

These are truly amazing. Thanks for sharing your adventure with one who will likely never be able to see such beauty in person.

Wonderful shots all, but I really like the one cub doing the wave. Certainly on my list of trips to take some day.

These are all absolutely fantastic and hard to choose a favorite. If that cub would have been looking straight at you when it waved... well... it would have been over the top.
As is, it's still over the top in my book. As are all of these gorgeous images.

Nice work! I'm soooo envious.

Outstanding series, and the cubs and mother thing gives them a special feel. Seeing these makes me determined to be looking through my viewfinder trying to get shots like these sooner rather than later!

Great set, what an incredible experience it must have been. Did you visit Churchill with a lodge or on a separate photo tour?
