Dee Ann says: As a nature photographer, the elements we must endure are many to get that one very special image; whether [it's] 115°F (46°C)  in India waiting for the moment I had envisioned for 10 years to have a Bengal tiger cool off in my favorite pond with a reflection, [it's] or at -50°C in Canada standing on a frozen lake for 7 days waiting on a mother polar bear to poke her nose through her snow covered den and introduce her cubs to the outside world for the first time, it is beyond worth it. Rim lit by winter’s low light on the horizon, these two spring cubs, who had only been outside the security of their den for a few hours, stay close to their mother for protection and warmth.
