Brown bear
Ours brun

The picture has been taken in our new Bear-parc. The bear is the emblem of our town since the middle-ages.
The darker bear is the male(Finn). He loves bathing and tried to convince his female (or daughter, they look just alike) to enjoy it as he does.

Enjoy it too!

Hello Anne,
Since the bear is the official emblem of your town, it seems only fitting that you give us a look at these two beautiful specimens. They seem to really be having a good time as they splash in the cool water. I especially like the cinnamon color of the female.
We have a small population of Black Bear in Ohio, but most of them are just passing through and don't actually reside here. I have seen many in our neighboring state of Pennsylvania throughout the years, which are truly a sight one will never forget.

Hi Anne,
Nice action photo of this playful bear. Amazing colors and excellent sharpness details.
Regards Jiri.

Hi Anne,
Photographing bears is always very funny and spectacular - when we're in safe on the other side of the fence. :-) At least this is my opinion. Very cute action shot, and the composition is perfect, as well as timing (you released the button just at the moment when the male lifted his "hand"). Congratulations for the nice photo. At the same time, please click here if interested - my first and only bear photo. :-)
Best regards, László

Liebe Anne,
passiert gar nicht oft, dass wir beim ersten Blick auf ein Foto hellauf lachen müssen. Wunderbar. Möge uns solche Fröhlichkeit nicht nur erhalten bleiben, sondern noch öfter erfreuen - auf TN wie im übrigen Leben. Mercí beaucoup! Mit herzlichem Gruss an die Bär'n von Bern,

Bonjour Anne

Regarde cette patte et griffes d'ours, WOW !
une superbe photo avec le POV et la façon
dont tu les as cadrés avec les sujets en action
apportant une grande dynamisme à l'image, TFS
