Though I already included a shot of a polar bear, I just couldn’t resist posting more. Polar bears remind me of living in the north, which I miss quite a lot. I find it interesting that places like zoos feel their habitats are more than adequate for the animals they house. In the case of large mammals it seems impossible to give them as much space as they really need. That being said I do not have a great understanding of the scale of the habitats versus what people see when they are visiting. I am glad for the opportunity to photograph these guys up close, but having seen them in the wild I can’t help feeling that large mammals should not be kept at the zoo.
