#EarthCapture by @andreaswolden A polar bear mother and her hardy cub in Svalbard, Norway. It’s a tough life for polar bears, having to spend much of their lives hunting for their next meal, battling extreme weather and coming up against rival bears. It’s a mean feat when a mother is able to raise even one cub to adulthood 💚
The last photos of Kenya’s ‘elephant queen’. These incredible photos were taken by @willbl on the plains of Tsavo in Kenya. The female, known for over 60 years as F_MU1, has died of natural causes and was one of the last remaining super tuskers in Africa. ‘If I hadn’t looked upon her with my own eyes, I might not have believed that such an elephant could exist in our world.’
