Species: Polar Bear | Location: Kaktovik, Alaska , USA
I went to Kaktovik, Alaska to watch these amazing endangered creatures. It was a very cold and windy day. A mother polar bear and her two cubs swam in the water towards a "bone pile" of a whale carcass that was legally hunted by the locals as part of their tradition. The bears love to come and pick pieces of meat left on the bones, and since they were incredibly hungry, any interruption, even by the tiniest seagull, was answered by pawing at the birds.

About The Photographer
As a veterinarian, I offer a special look into the eyes and souls of the animals I photograph. My ability to read and anticipate animal behavior allows me to catch "special moments" and give you a glimpse into their rich emotional lives and unique personalities.
Many of the animals I photograph are endangered. I hope that you will connect with them through my lens, love them as I do, and join me in the fight to help them.
My passions also include street photography, travel photography, and interesting land and cityscapes. I take my camera with me always, and love capturing the people of New York City where I live today, and my native home of Jerusalem. But animals will always have my heart...
