This polar bear was taking a break when I snapped this shot. He made me wish I could breathe underwater! :) (I know polar bears don’t actually breathe underwater, but you know what I mean;))

    Love this one’s personality right away.

  • haha He (or maybe she?) looks like an astronaut or something! When I saw him floating around like this, I whipped my camera out so fast you wouldn’t believe it. ;) LOL
