This is a fantastic capture of this beautiful bear, Emile, something most of us never see. Love how he's playing and throwing the snow around.

I think she maybe giving you a "come-hither" look Emile! :-) Put a coke bottle in her hand and you have the perfect coca-cola add!

Thank you so much for all your supportive comments on my flower images, truly appreciated!
