European Brown Bear

I still have a couple of tiger shots to post, but I thought this shot would make a nice change.


At the Dartmoor Zoological Park there is a group of European Brown Bears. Many of these bears have been rescued, or taken from other zoos who were going to have them "put down"!! I believe this to be Daddy Bear!

I struggled a bit with the lighting as they are in a wooded area...I'm a little annoyed I didn't notice the burnt out forehead from the dappled sunlight until I got home!


Dedicated to my friend Nick for his lovely testimonial. Check out his fantastic work here:
