It seemed as if all the female polar bears in the area came past the lodge at some point in the day. It was non-stop polar bear watching. Cameras in hand, we slowly approached a few of the lovely ladies, and spend many hours photographing them. The relaxed nature of these bears meant that we got to witness completely natural behaviour, and photograph the polar bears doing what they normally do. A nice surprise late in the day was a fly-by by a white-faced gyrfalcon. During dinner, in-between the other female bears, we saw a mother with 2 young cubs walking past the lodge. Unfortunately they didn’t stay in the lights long enough to get a photograph, but what a privilege to see such young polar bears!
