27.9.2019 – Photos by Anna Novikova

It’s difficult to take photos of the whole family together but this time Anna has managed to take lots of lovely pics of our white fluffy friends.

It’s a new morning in the Novosibirsk Zoo. Mama Gerda and her twins are awake and curiously looking out from their den.

What shall we do today?

Let’s go and see if there are any early visitors ….

Isn’t this a lovely family portrait?

One of the twins is still yawning …. Obviously the bears are looking at something intesting …

Maybe Gerda sees Anna with her camera …. 🙂 – In the background you can see the little snow heap. Hopefully it doesn’t last too long until our white fluffy friends can enjoy real snow!

Come on, kids! Time to do something else than just watching the visitors.

The bear family took a nice morning walk. What a nice parade!

After the walk it was time for playing with the toys. Yoga with the red cone is fun! 🙂

Oh bear, the toy fell in the water ….

… but artistic swimming with it is fun, too!!

Even the yellow tube is a popular toy.

You can use it as a periscope or maybe as an under water binoculars?

Dear children, is everything OK? I hope you’re having a good time together without ‘arguments’!

But mama, we are the best friends and never argue …. hmm, we hardly ever argue ….. well, we argue quite a lot but very nicely!!!

Of course, Gerda wants to show her kids how much she loves them.

Mama, we love you, too!

Beautiful Gerda is a good mother and she has certainly done a good job teaching Nordi and Shauna ‘polar bear things’.

A sleeping polar bear is a wonderful sight …..

…. so heart warming to see ….

…. and a sleeping polar bear mama with her cubbies is simply adorable.

Let’s leave Gerda, Shauna and Nordi napping peacefully but they’ll be back soon!

  1. Dear Anna and Mervi!
    Has there been a cuteness warning? I must have missed it…
    I´m quite enthusiastic about these enchanting photos which are really lovely family portraits.

    For sure you must have had fun while taking them, just as much when editing this article, making up the story and the subtitles.

    In any case it is obvious that the frisky little ones and their beautiful mother had a good time and enjoyed their togetherness.
    It is difficult to choose a favourite pic. I loved them all: the red cone yoga, the artistic swimming, all this cuddling, playing, argueing and just looking so cute…

    Thank you for sharing these delightful impressions with us!

    Hugs
    Anke

  2. Dear Anna and Mervi!
    The pictures of three bears are wonderful. Gerda is a proud mother.
    The kids play very nice. It is great that they have many toys.
