Hey love, give us a lick of your lolly!

By Valerie1
I found this shot while looking through back files. I found this shot comical with the bear's tongue hanging out. Hope you enjoy viewing it.

Thanks for all your C & C on my last upload. As usual, any critique welcome.

'The sun bear is the smallest of the bear family and gets its name from the orange-yellow crescent-shaped mark on its chest. The sun bear's small size allows it to climb high trees in the forests of Malaysia. There, it will hunt out small rodents, lizards, fruit, eggs, honey, insects: almost anything it can get its long extensible tongue onto'. May be even an ice-cream or lolly or two. 'The male bear at Belfast Zoo was rescued from a Malaysian village where he was, almost certainly, being fattened up for the dinner table'.

Great shots! What a tongue! You wouldn't have much lolly left after he had licked it!

How does he get that tongue in his mouth, lovely shot and great title. He's not got his claw caught in it I suppose?! In V2 the wrinkled brow made me smile!

Thanks everyone for your clicks and comments. They are much appreciated. Yes Peter, it is difficult to find a clean piece of glass from which to shoot through. As you know it is usually covered in dirty little hand prints or ice cream. To the staff's credit, they no sooner clean it and it gets dirty again. I'm a vertically challenged person so it is difficult to shoot above to dirty parts.
