I come to the Journey to Churchill exhibit nearly every visit with a sense of anticipation. Will the bears be in their pool? Will they be outside in their wilderness area? Or will they all be in their den sleeping?

On this particular visit there were two polar bears in the pool play fighting with each other or diving for their personal toys or watching the seals in the nearby exhibit.

In one location in pool complex there is an overhead area where the polar bears can climb out of the water and be visible to anyone standing directly underneath the window. I liked this particular result with the collection of paws and legs visible from the two bears as they play fought overhead.

Your perspective is so powerful - gives the feeling of being there live and watching this slow motion water ballet.

It wasn't until I read your explanation that I could identify what your picture was all about. The perspective from below now makes sense!
