Taken back in July 2006 at the wonderful Edinburgh Zoo. This isn't the best photograph I took on that day, but I really like the sad expression on the Polar Bears face. As a native animal to the Arctic I don't think it is quite cold enough in Scotland. For July the bear looked very hot and unhappy. I feel it is good to save these creatures from certain death (as was the case with Mercedes) but putting them on their own like this without a friend. It just seems very depressed. On well, I had never seen a Polar Bear before so it was a very weird experience.
