Polar bears in sunset

They’re usually pictured against a bright white backdrop but this family of polar bears bathed in a vibrant reds, yellows and oranges as they watched a glorious sunset in Alaska.

The stunning shots capture the moment a female bear and her two cubs enjoyed the last warm rays of the sun at the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Kaktovik. The bears can be seen gazing at the vibrant sunset and appear to revel in the tranquil moment as they bask in the array of colors.

Photographer, Sylvain Cordier, spent three weeks following the bears to capture the memorable moment. The 67-year-old from Alsace in France said: I was lucky because I was photographing a very calm and cooperative mother and her two large cubs.

How Coral Grows

Set out on an underwater adventure to the scene below the waves around Andros Island - one of the largest barrier reefs in the world - with DIORAMA at The American Museum of Natural History. For more, visit The astounding colors and shapes of the Caribbean’s Andros Reef are created by colonies of small, soft-bodied coral polyps whose hard skeletons form the unearthly architecture of the reef’s structure. While you’re there, go way back in a film reel time machine to a 1930’s Andros. See scientists and artists study, document, and even paint underwater with the aid of diving suits, in order to recreate this subsurface setting.

Features interviews with AMNH scientists and curators Melanie Stiassny and John Sparks.
