The tundra swan, Cygnus columbianus

Polar bear Ursus maritimus and cubs

The arctic ermine, Mustela erminea

A snow owl Bubo scandiacus in low flight

Arctic hares, Lepus arcticus

The rock Ptarmigan Lagopus muta in winter

The artic Tern, Sterna paradisaea

A baby harp seal, Pagophilus groenlandicus

Or even...
A snow cat :)
