... in the fresh snow when suddenly there was a flock of Ptarmagan birds. We saw a couple of these the other day - they are plentiful but apparently very elusive. They are like very quickly moving pieces of crystal. It wasn't long before we spotted a couple more on another frozen lake. It's amazing just how many different types of tracks there are on the snow when you look for them ... different types of birds, foxes (arctic and also red), snow hares, ...

Small ears and tail to minimize freezing, large feet to distribute weight on the ice, bumps on pads to provide traction on ice, webbed feet to provide propulsion when swimming, and short, stocky claws needed to grip heavy prey and ice, these bears are custom designed for the north (not surprisingly, many of the folks we met ...

... Not long afterwards, we saw our mum and cub from yesterday. They too were in the general area of the lodge but did hang around for long as there were males in the area too. Males will try to kill the cub in order to breed with the female so the mums are very protective of their offspring and will even attack another male even though his so much bigger and stronger than her.
