[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was taken at Grönklitt Björneparken. The bear-park at Orsa is not a zoo, it's a breeding station for brown bears (Ursus arctos). In 1994 one of the bears had 5 children. I watched the family from a bridge over the fence. Suddenly the mother lay down on her back and the five little bears began to drink. Unfortunately you cannot hear the sounds the drinking bears and the lactating mother make. When the bears are grown up they bring them back to wilderness. If you are in Dalarna it's worth a visit.

Is a particular shot! The puppies are really oppressive with their mother!

Wonderful shot, Roland. I did not know that a mama bear can have so many cubs. Isn't that rather unusual. Great family scene. Well done and TFS. : )

Hallo Roland,
ach sind die süüüüüßßßß!
Da hast Du aber einen wundevollen Moment festhalten können. Und der schöne "Aussichtspunkt" von oben, das ist perfekt. Hab' mich richtig in die knuddeligen Bärchen verliebt, danke und liebe Grüße
