The beautiful polar bear photo reminds me of a scene I witnessed at the San Diego Zoo. Young children were watching a hippo swim by in a similar enclosure. When she reached the area where the children were standing, the hippo pirouetted and "danced" in the water. She looked like the ballet star of "Fantasia" and made the children so happy! Nature can be kind to little ones.

Later I was drawing animals through a plexiglass wall for for an art class assignment. Clyde, an orangutan, brought his "toys" over to show me. He modeled his prize possessions, a large piece of cardboard and a few other items. He really aped it up, it was touching.

Another time, my son was at a fish hatchery and we were looking for sturgeon through an observation window. I said a little prayer to ask a fish to swim by so he could see it, a six-footer swam to the window and turned to swim past, showing how long it was, thrilling a little boy and answering a mom's prayer.
