At the Detroit Zoo, the polar bears have a huge expanse of territory, including a clear tube and tank where you feel like you’re right there with them. Thus this candid shot of this adorable bear having some fun swimming.
There is a calm feeling of deep peace that being near these creatures brings – I’ve always loved them, but now I feel like I actually need to be near them! They have a special healing power.
The Detroit Zoo has a law stating that photographers must state that:
