    This bear was hilarious trying to flatten this plastic barrel. He jumped up and down on it 20 times at least. He's get it nearly flat and it would suddenly pop back to its original shape. I had to take many frames to stop the action at the top of his bounce. I used my Fuji X-E1 with my 55-200mm F/3.5-4.8 zoom.

    Thanks. I got a kick out of standing there watching it all happen.

    You know, I'd completely missed this photograph of yours Bob. Stunning black and white with excellent details - and the back story is great! I always feel rather sad for the animals in zoos. He's awfully handsome.

    This is a photo I took of his sidekick. Conrad is doing much better than his bouncy friend.
