28.10.2017 – Photos by Jeanette Johnsen

Today I have the great pleasure of publishing Jeanette Johnsens wonderful photos of the polar bear family in Aalborg. She visited the zoo yesterday (the 27th of October) and met Malik, Nuka and Quilak in a good playing mood. Thank you so much, Jeanette! Mange tak!

This seems to be a planning meeting ….

Obviously there’s a little argument. 🙂

No hard feelings!

Mama Malik is telling one of her daughters the secrets of excellent diving.

It would be great to know what the cubbie is telling her mama. 🙂

Why use words when you can use a little shower? 🙂

Time to start diving

Mama, did you like my style?

Malik demonstrates her brilliant diving skils to her children. Soon Nuka and Quilak will be as good divers as their mama – that’s for sure with such a mentor!

That was all for today but we’ll be back soon with more exciting photos by Jeanette.

  1. Kära Jeanette!

    Tack så mycket för tillståndet att publicera dina fina bilder även in Knuti’s Weekly!

    Det är fantastiskt att se Malik, Nuka och Quilak på så gott lekhumör. 🙂 Familjen verkar ha jättekul tillsammans. Malik är en duktig isbjörnsmamma och ungarna verkar vara snabba att lära sig allt en isbjörn behöver lära sig.

    Kram från Mervi

  2. Liebe Mervi,
    Dir und Jeanette ganz herzlichen Dank für diese süßen Fotos/Thank you so much for the lovely photos.
    Das sieht nach totalem Badespaß aus. Die Kleinen haben durch ihre Mama eine Super-Lehrerin gefunden.
    Ein sehr schöner Beitrag.
    Herzliche Grüße von Annemarie

  3. Seems there are lots of fun shown in vivid pictures – thanks to JEANETTE JOHNSON’s photographical skills (well done!) and the tireless editing actions/efforts of ‘KWM-chief MERVI’ (KNUTi-style hugs your way – also thinking of dear LARS).

    Charmed of eacu other and charming bears!

  4. Dear Mervi and Jeanette!
    Thank you for the lively photos of the polar bear family in Aalborg.
    These bears know definitely how to have fun – on land and in the water.
    All pics are great.
    Malik is a good teacher to her feisty girls.

    It is wonderful to see them doing fine although there is a drop of bitterness when remembering Lars…

    Hugs
    Anke

  5. Dear Jeanette and Mervi

    Thank you for the excellent photos
    of the polarbear family in Aalborg!
    The kids have grown a lot. 🙂

    Greetings
    Chris 🙂

  6. Dear Jeanette and Mervi
    It is great to be able to meet Malik
    and her girls here.
    By coincidence I had lunch with the
    friend of mine in London who the cubs
    reminded me of when I first met them.
    Lars loved watching Malik and the girls
    and I was fortunate to see him just
    before he left us. Nuka and Qillak are
    his last legacy. Malik was a fine partner.

  7. Dear Mervi and Jeanette!
    Thank you for the wonderful pictures of Malik playing with her girls.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  8. Dear Mervi and Jeanette Johnsen

    Thanks a lot for the wonderful pictures of the Aalborg polarbears and the charming comments.
    Dejlige billeder af skønne bjørne.

    Hugs
    Inge

  9. Liebe Mervi und liebe Jeanette,
    Malik ist eine hervorragende Mutter und sie und ihre Töchter haben sichtlich Spaß miteinander.
    Vielen Dank, für die schönen Bilder und ich freue mich auf mehr von der kleinen Familie in Aalborg.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K

  10. Liebe Mervi,

    der Lehrstunde von Malik mit deinen lustigen Kommentaren zusehen macht wieder großen Spaß.
    Natürlich denke ich bei diesen bezaubernden Bildern auch an Lars, der so sehr vermisst wird.
    Seine beiden Söhne leben in ihm weiter und haben vielleicht auch seinen so friedlichen
    Charakter geerbt.

    Danke an dich und Jeanette für den schönen Beitrag!
    Liebe Grüße
    Britta-Gudrun

  11. Dear Mervo and Jeanette,
