The last few times visiting the polar bears has found them outside and enjoying the colder temperatures and the snow. On this particular day there were a trio of polar bears outside with two engaged in play fighting while the other bear sat off to the side watching the other two bears.

I liked this particular image with Aurora posing as if saying: "Tell me a story". I know Aurora because she is always dirty while the other bears look cleaner and whiter.

I also found this image interesting because of the 9 polar bears in the Journey to Churchill exhibit only one lived into adulthood outside a zoo and the reason that bear came to the exhibit because it was a choice between the bear being put down as a nuisance bear that had attacked humans in Churchill, Manitoba or coming to the exhibit.

An unusual shot of the bears from you Jan, normally they are in the water. Great shot full of detail,
