In the Novosibirsk Zoo the polar bears have a little snow even in the Summer time. There’s no doubt it’s very much appreciated by Gerda, Nordi and Shauna.

Doesn’t Gerda has a nice smile?

The kids love to roll in the snow. What could be more suitable on a hot day ….

The snow keeps their furs white and shiny.

Even the boomsies look very clean! 🙂

Mama told us it will soon be Fall and after that our season Winter will come.

Mama, how many sleeps does it take until it’s Winter again?

I’m trying to count but I don’t think I have enough claws!!

Do you think we could play with that giant ball together?

Mama’s back can often be very useful!

Suddenly the scenery changed! Doesn’t it look like there’s stardust … and the balls look like planets?

  1. Liebe Mervi,

    ich freu mich immer ganz besonders über die 3 Guten!Feine Fotos sind es,wirklich wie bei der Schneekönigin. 😉

    Liebe Grüße von Brigitte

  2. Dear Arkadii and Mervi!
    Thank you for the interesting report about Gerda and her kids. It is great for polar bears to have the snow in the enclosure.
    The jump from Gerda’s back is very funny. The flying bears are fantastic.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  3. Ohhh, what a wonderful story and really awesome pictures!!!!
    These small Fur Balls enjoy so much the little snow …..

    Many thanks, dear Arkadii and Mervi!

    Greetings from Tallinn,
    Evi.

  4. So lovely the bears. So lovely the pictures. I already loved the first one when the kid far right starts to hop on his sibbling – funny, indeed!

    Any of the pics are for sure a big success but just had a sepcial laugh on “Mama’s back can often be very useful!” 🙂 🙂

    I cannot but agree, dear MERVI: “Arkadij has managed to take fantastic photos!” from this point on the next three are like for and in a BOOK! Right art work! . . . But he mad fantatc photos from the first to the last of ALL the photos. . . . Also your titles again were fun!

    Thanks to the both of you for the pleasure for eyes and mind!

    In the 9th photo from above the little one (which one? I am unable to take them apart . . ) clearly asks somebody: “May I tell you a secret?” 😉 Was this ARKADII LAPTENKO by any chance??
    May be he is willing to tell us? 🙂

    PS:
    Has ANNA given up to visit the beautiful family and to take pics and share her wonderful products with the public? I hope she is well!

  5. Dear Mervi and Arkadij!
    These are very cute photos and a wonderful story in addition!
    I must have failed to hear the cuteness alarm…

    This was for sure a great pleasure for the bears to play in a snow heap on a hot summer´s day.
    The little ones and their beautiful mother had obviously much fun with it.

    I loved the whole photo gallery but some pics I found really smashing: No. 1 – 8, No.14, No.19 and the last one. The subtitles were again the cherry on the cake!
    Thank you so much for sharing!

    Hugs
    Anke

  6. Liebe Mervi, lieber Arkadij!

    Die Stardustbilder sind phantastisch! Die beiden Cuties sind gross geworden, danke fuer die wunderschoenen Bilder und den lieben Bericht.

    Liebe Gruesse, Erika

  7. Liebe Mervi,

    danke fürs Zeigen der fantastischen Fotos der süßen Bärenfamilie.

    Super, dass die beiden Kids schon Schnee kennen lernen durften Und sie hatten sehr viel Spaß.
    Ich hoffe für unsere Hertha, dass wir in diesem Winter auch Schnee haben werden.
    Kleine Eisbärchen turnen anscheinend gerne auf Mamas Rücken herum, oder benutzen sie als Sprungbrett.
    Tolle Momentaufnahme.

    Liebe Grüße
    Monika
