ホッキョクグマの子供が、カメラに向かって手を振っているような、可愛らしい写真が撮影された。

 

後ろ足で立ち、手を振るような仕草

 

この写真を撮ったのは、野生動物写真家のRoy Mangersnesさん。

 

彼はロックダウンが緩和されたのち、7月10日にノルウェー北部にあるSvalbardの街に撮影旅行へ出かけ、そこでホッキョクグマの親子に遭遇。

 

探検用のボートで数メートルまで近づいた時、突然ホッキョクグマの子供が後ろ足で立ち上がり、まるで手を振るかのような仕草をしたという。

Well HELLO THERE!! What a welcome! Both last year and this season there has been a lot of ice around #svalbard and the conditions have been very good for the resident Polar bears. Finally coming back on a #coronafree expedition we hoped to maybe see females with cubs, and we were treated to an incredible encounter. After spending some time at a safe distance this beautiful family of three decided to come check us out and give us a proper welcome. The first polar bear encounter of the year turned in to one of our best ever! Where will this end? Find more informtion about our safe bookings and safe travel on the link in our bio.

母親も子供も太っていて健康そうだった

 

Mangersnesさんは新型コロナによるロックダウンの影響で、撮影旅行を4カ月も待たなければならず、先週やっとSvalbardを訪れることができたそうだ。

 

またSvalbardの周辺では、昨年も今シーズンも多くの氷が残っており、ホッキョクグマにとっては良い環境になっていたという。

The beautiful sight of a mother and her cubs. We are now in Eastern Spitsbergen, Svalbard in the drifting sea ice. Our first polar bear this season was a reaxed female with 2 cubs. An amazing encounter which was a pleasure to share with our #wildphototravel guests. It is very special to explore Svalbard alone and #covidfree, without any other expedition ships in the archipilago. We will spend the day in the drifting ice, before we find shelter from a weather system which will pass through tomorrow… Picture taken by @ojlwildphoto Follow the link in our bio to ensure you get one of the last spots available for the season. It could be you photographing the beauty of the Arctic. #photography #photographer #polarbear #svalbard #roamtheplanet #pictureoftheday #travelphotography #naturephotography #special_shots

Mangersnesさんはクマたちがいる巨大な浮き氷の隣で、安全な距離を保ちながら船を横付けし、3頭のホッキョクグマの家族を観察できたとか。

 

ホッキョクグマの母親も子供も太っていて健康そうに見え、母親は多くの時間を眠って過ごしていたという。

 

その一方、子供たちはお互いに飛び上がったり、氷の上を転げまわったり、時には小さな氷の山に登り、滑ったりしていたそうだ。

なんとも微笑ましい写真だが、環境の変化で多くのホッキョクグマが過酷な状況に追いやられているとの報告もある。子供たちには健康に育ってもらいたいものだ。(了)
