Weekend Reflections...

This polar bear is so far from the North Pole that he has begun to take on the shades of the leaves in his pool...is he dreaming of a White Christmas?

This post is for James' Weekend Reflections, so pop on over and see who else has posted reflections.

Wonderful! I really like this picture :)

Thérèse said...

Of course he is dreaming of a White Christmas!
I kind of pity this bear though...

The polar bear adds a very interesting dimension to your reflections shot! It would be fun to know what he's thinking, if anything.

'Course, you may not want to know. He could be thinking, "C'mon lady, just a few steps closer...lean over that fence...a little more..."

Wow, nice shot. The bear looks as he is part of the rock, frozen in time, but his energy, crouched and ready to explode. What a great contrast, well done!

He may be looking to make a 'photographer sandwich.'

Similar to the cat napping by the bird bath at Seattle Daily Photo...

The reflection is beautiful, the polar bear looks out of place. Hope his dreams come true. Nice capture Bibi.

What a lovely bear! He does not seem to be dreaming, but afraid to fall in the water!
The reflection on the water is great , with the beautyful autumn colors. But please, help the bear! Ü

Ebie said...

Oh, isn't he so adorable! There are sol many things I love about this shot, the composition, the angle, the colors and the reflection!

May his wish come true!

Halcyon said...

Funny! Maybe bears change their colors in the fall too.

Happy weekend!!!

Really cute photo.
I'm coming to Belgrade for half a year, and your blog is really interesting to me.
Thanks :)

Leif Hagen said...

What a big teddy bear! So cute and cuddly! I thought polar bears were supposed to be white?

Hope you feel better soon, Bibi!

Poor bear.

Woody said...

Shhh, don't wake him up. I would not want to spoil his dreams! Very nice photo and the reflections are very nice.

Jilly said...

What an absolutely fabulous photograph, Bibi. He may be in the best place if the ice caps are about to melt.

Tash said...

This is so lovely, 'Bibi'.
It is a must addition to your calendar portfolio.

Amy said...

How cute! The bear reminds me of my ferret, Ski. He's the same color and is sleeping in that position right now. :)

Aw, lovely, chubby, lazy fellow/gal. Beautiful composition. I think its dreaming the leaves are tiny ice flows and it was cavorting with its mother and sibling in the great white north.
