Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus) cubs, about 10 months old, were crossing the sea ice with their mother as the sun was setting on Kaktovik on the northeast coast of Alaska. Their mother was moving along but the cubs (especially the mischievous male cub on the left) had other ideas. They caught the scent of something in the other direction and lingered. The male cub was very curious and checked us out in this image. The female was pretty uninspired by us, and seemed to more interested in finding a warm spot to nap. Amazing to get to know a bit of their individual personalities after spending hours watching them.
