These Polar Bears are scavenging on whatever they can while waiting for the fall/winter ice to form over the Arctic Ocean just beyond that gravelly sandbar in the distance. Only when the water freezes can they range out on the open frozen sea and hunt for their main prey, seals.

This young cub following its mother in almost perfect lock-step is an object lesson on how they survive. They naturally follow their mother’s example, they copy and they learn. The sow’s instincts and habits have allowed her to make it in this harsh environment. The best chance this cub has to survive is to follow in her footsteps.
