White Stroll

This mother polar bear and her cub of about one and a half year old, seem to be taking a leisurely stroll. The light is exquisite and the background immaculately white, showing that polar bears really are not that white at all. In fact, they are black-skinned and are only perceived white because of their coats, consisting of hollow guard hairs.
