Polar bear
Ours blanc
Ursus maritimus

Bear native largely within the Arctic Circle.
Vulnerable species.
It is the world's largest land carnivore. It shares this title with the Kodiak Bear.
Polar bears can breed with brown bears to produce fertile hybrids.

In front the mother lying still. Behind the son as big as his mom, aslo lying but never still.
Shot from closest to the ground as possible to avoid including the ugly horizon.

PP work:
exposure: -0.8
Crop left 2.5%, right 2.5%, below 5%
Sharpening necessary due to the resizing as always.

Bonjour Jean-Marie,
Adorable scène..intéressant de voir ces carctères différents, mais il en est ainsi des humains aussi. Très bonne idée d'avoir tenté cet angle de vue très bas. Excellente netteté aussi. Bien vu!
Bonne fin de semaine
