A Teddy to hug

By Saastad
Maybe not this one. Could be a bit risky Smile
Well I think it is good that things has started to get back to "normal" after Covid 19.
People are more close, give each other a hug or a kiss. And everything beginning to feel better.
Hope you begin to feel the same in your country Smile

Also want to say thanks for the votes, comments and awards on my little flying Blue Tit.
All very much appreciated.

Hope you will enjoy this weeks photo.
Best wishes,
Arne Smile

A superb image, beautiful detail.

I once spent 3 days in Slovakia trying to photography brown bears in the wild, getting up at 5.30 am and staying out to lat at night. But the bears did not show.

I like the head-on approach in photographing the bear, which gives great details and also more dangerous!! Your image does give the feeling of a cuddly bear, or perhaps not, Arne.

A wonderful capture Arne. You don't see many of those wandering around.
As for returning to normal. Folk here are wandering around, hugging, being close
and guess what. That's right, spreading the virus.
