Saturday Snapshot -- Polar Bear

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
The Columbus Zoo & Aquarium got polar bears this year. When my friend Ruth and her 7-year-old came to visit, Grace and I went along to the zoo.

This polar bear looks like an overgrown dog with his stick.

And when the polar bear climbed onto a ledge in his habitat, he took the stick with him. You can see it lying in front of him on the rock.
If you ever get a chance to visit the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, it's a great one.

I am ashamed to admit that I haven't been to the zoo in years. I want to see the polar bears, but I also want to see those giant bats.

It looks like the polar bear kept y'all entertained for a while. He's beautiful!

When we lived in NC we often went to the zoo in Ashboro. They had a great polar bear exhibit.

That looks like an amazing zoo..so much open space behind the polar bear.

Great shots! Love polar bears...in fact, just looking at them, I feel cooler in this heat.

Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

He just looks like a teddy bear. It is easy to forget they are big powerful creatures.

Polar bears are fun to see up close at the zoo - especially in the water. (Of course I'd be terrified to meet one in any other circumstance.) :)

We went to a small zoo this summer with our family and young granddaughter (see my photo a few weeks ago). No polar bears there. Your pics are good.

Very cute, just seems so out of his element in Ohio.

Very cute!

He looked so relax floating on his back. :D I imagine him to be whistling as he gnaw bits from the stick. ☺

Great shots! Polar bears are so cute - if anything that BIG can be thought of as cute. I used to love to go to the zoo in Washington DC and look at the pandas, but haven't been in many years.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
