Brown Bear

By pdunstan_Greymoon    
I took this last week at Terra Natura, near Murcia (Spain)
Although I would of course much prefer to see these animals in their own habitat, I think the areas these animals were given here are as natural for them as possible and they do appear to be happy. This little chappy was taking a cooling dip as it was quite hot.
Got this before I fell out of my wheelchair and damaged my lens hood, think that saved the lens and camera!!!

Wow...what an endearing image, he does look like he is enjoying the cool water. Sorry to hear about your fall, lucky it was only the hood

Love this capture - he looks very contented - you need to try a little more tonic in your gin!!Wink sounds as though you got off lightly.

So cute, can i have one please. A great pose for you and well captured.

Yes a lovely pose. Wonder how quickly that cute look would disappear if i'd got in there with him!!!!
Cracking shot ...... at least it was only your lens hood.
