14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Mother's Affection

I was fortunate to capture this loving moment between mom and and her very young (3 months old) offspring. They had just emerged from their den (near Wapusk National Park in British Columbia) about a week previously and were on their way to Hudson Bay- their summer home. Now they were "out in the open", resting a bit and taking time for a little "snuggle".
