This picture was such a wonderfully lucky shot! It was the first time we ever saw the polar bears in the water. They have always been outside in the sunshine when we visited the zoo. This time, they were going into the water to catch the treats the handler was throwing them. After several tries I got this one, with the bear just getting hold of a carrot. It was quite dark underground in the viewing area, and I didn't want to use a flash in front of the glass. What a rush to see these giants in the water!
