What a dream come true, Peter. The cub taking a spill is so cute — absolutely priceless. Congrats on fulfilling your dream. A wonderful image!

What a charmer! So cute, and a lovely scene as well. So glad your dream came true and we get to share a little piece of it.

Wonderful when dreams come true, Peter! The tiny cub learning how to walk on ice just makes the image so special.

A trip and image to treasure!

Cute moment and eye contact, well depicted Peter, shame about the fog/haze.
