I have created this for the Winter Whimsy Challenge which is in the enchanting Animal Fantasy and Whimsy Group.

The challenge called for a creative portrayal of animals in the winter.

I have so enjoyed creating this one. Whenever I make composites of animals it always makes me smile and feel incredibly happy.

I chose the polar bears because I thought it would be fun to try and develop an image using largely white as the dominant colour (and I also thought that we would be seeing a great many reindeers in the coming month!)

The image was created totally in Photoshop CS4. The background was my own photo. I am grateful to the artists who made the bears available.
