A female polar bear and her cubs take a well deserved snooze after devouring a bearded seal. Please go to @mattiasklumofficial to find them awake. Polar bears nap almost anywhere and any time, especially after feeding on a seal. This time of year sun never really sets in Svalbard. However light is softer and even more gorgeous at night. I usually choose to work “night shift” also since the polar bears (and other species) tend to be more active during night hours. This adaptation is surely because both ringed seals and bearded seals are more active at night. But “day and night” does not mean that much in the Arctic where there are 24 hours of daylight in summer and 24 hours of darkness during the cold winter. #svalbard #polar #polarbears #arctic #savingthearctic #climatechange #bwsp #expedition #mattiasklum #cubs #mom #predator @mattiasklumofficial @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety by natgeo
