    1. Oh, that’s good, I’m glad you passed that video on! Yes, I’m amazed at some of the angles these camera people get themselves into. Determination to get a really good piece of film or picture probably is the drive to almost do anything for that perfect result. Worth a lot of money too! πŸ™‚

    1. I’m not sure about this climate change thing, I shared the video purely because I thought it was lovely to see them swimming as though we could be swimming with them, and the quality of the film is so good. I’m glad you enjoyed it though! πŸ™‚

      A change in climate in different areas of the world has been occurring and recorded to some extent for a few thousand years, not like we do today of course, but many changes have happened many times before – I don’t believe climate change is something new. I’ve read a lot of the arguments for and against and know other people who are interested in the debate too, the argument for the word falling apart due to global warming doesn’t really stand as logical when compared to historical facts about how the climate around the world has been altering for thousands of years. In the past people and animals have adjusted and would moved on to an area where the climate is more suitable for them. The trouble is none of us really want to live like that any more, we build ourselves permanent homes and huge cities that no-one wants to leave, and I’m sure the animals are effected by that too. Humans to some extent interfere and manage wildlife for good and sometimes for selfish reasons. I’m sure that kind of modern day man influence is far more damaging to our world and wildlife than any pollution could ever achieve. And the statement at the end of the video that their sea ice is in decline might be true, but it may well be on the increase in another direction, but no-one seems keen to point that kind of change out, so most people don’t know that happens.

      I guess time will tell how these Polar Bears will be effected in this area (if their ice is declining at a fast speed) but for most of them alive today, I think there’s still plenty of ice for them to live a happy life, so don’t be too sad Lauren! πŸ™‚

      1. I haven’t done research on this, so you may be right. I hope you’re right about them having enough ice. I’m sure man has done more damage to our lovely planet than man ever intended or thought “he/she” would. And of course, the animals will be affected, no doubt…anyway, they are beautiful creatures and I did enjoy the video, so thanks again, Suzy! Have a great week! πŸ™‚

    1. That’s what I thought when I first saw it – amazing quality to the film too. It’s one of those videos you just can’t keep to yourself! My favourite bit is when all their feet line up, they look like little cute teddy bears – not at all cute or little of course, complete illusion, but it always makes me smile that bit!! πŸ˜€

  1. Yes, very graceful, but the message is clear that they are in trouble, and that is so sad.

    I always wonder how they can film so closely and not disturb the animals.

    1. Yes, that’s what I wonder sometimes – how do they do that? Maybe they’re not quite as close as they seem to be, but they’re certainly following behind them for a reasonable length of time. Maybe the bears like the interest and the company – or maybe they’ve done that before and they knew someone would throw them some delicious fish afterwards? Food is always a good way to keep in the right side of wild animals! πŸ™‚

  2. Yes!! so relaxing. I like the gentle movement of the bear’s fur as the bear moved around in the water. With such nice music, I can see one can happily drift off πŸ™‚

    Well done and fascinating!

    1. All that water does make their fur look very silky and floaty, and almost as if they are as light as feathers, but they must weigh a lot when they get out of that water. I wonder how long it takes for them to dry?!! πŸ˜€
