Protection
Female polar bears protect their young by taking high ground, even a small rise, and letting them play or nurse or sleep.  If the cubs wander they may fall prey to wolves.  If she counter attacks wolves, the vulnerable cubs can be picked off by other wolves.   : bears : TIMOTHY FLOYD PHOTOGRAPHER, NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY, PHOTO ESSAYS, PHOTOJOURNALISM
