Polar Bear – Rub-a-dub

Polar Bear


On the distant marge of Alaska’s interface with the frigid Arctic Ocean, Polar Bears gathered in anticipation of the forming ice pack. In many instances their coats were quite dirty and there was no snow on the ground , yet … not the best of circumstances and settings for photography. Then it snowed.

Rub-a-dub, its coat wears mud
When come the snows, the bruin knows
To make it clean, a roll it seems
Is all it takes, and fine it makes
