Peace, Love and Polar Bears


Around this time of year, we receive tons of holiday email cards from museums, artists and photographers. (Who could forget the Met museum’s artsy gif?) A few hours ago, one came in from photographer Michael Poliza, who you may remember from this post we titled Raw Wildlife Photography. Author of several books including Kenya, South Africa, and Antarctic, this award-winning photographer is known for his stunning aerial shots of dramatic landscapes and his breathtaking photos of animals from all around the world.

For his holiday email card, Poliza sent us a picture of a peeking polar bear along with a lighthearted set of polar bears at play. One can’t help but feel a sense of joy from these photos. In fact, they were so cute, we just had to share them.
