Photographer's Note

A resigned one year old Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus) cub wearily follows its mother across the permafrost - waiting for the day the Hudson Bay freezes over and they can go hunting again... At this point it was -18C, and the Hudson Bay was starting to freeze, so hopefully they didn't have much longer to wait!

During the thaw they live off their fat reserves, so it's vital that they hunt successfully during the colder months.
