This image is one of a series where this big ‘ole Polar Bear emerged from a snow bank and decided to take a stroll around our Polar Rover.

He had already brushed off once, so I really wasn’t expecting it when he paused for a moment mid-stride and gave a giant shake! He looked like a big dog just coming out of a bath – a snow bath in this instance!

My favorite part? I love in this one how he almost seems to be “smiling” in this image. I guess he enjoyed it – but probably not as much as I did!
