  1. So beautiful and so amazing… thank you for these wonderful photos.


  2. Dear LeenaP,

    It’s a great comfort to know Knut had some good times with mother Tosca. The last photos is so beautiful!

    In these photos we can also see what an innovative bear he was. He turned all the little things he saw into something to play with…..

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful memories with us!

    Hugs from Mervi

  3. Dear Mervi,

    Yes, he was such an innovative bear – and this is only a collection showing him playing with one single “toy”, a simple water hose. Just think of him playing with his various balls, a tree trunk – or tiny twigs …

    By the way, the second polar bear on the photos is Gianna. They had their peaceful moments, too 🙂

    Kind regards to all,


  4. LeenaP,

    Sorry about my misstake! Of course, it’s Giovanna – the photos are taken in the old enclosure! I wish I wasn’t always in such a hurry…..

    Hugs from Mervi

  5. Thanks so much, Leena……you have given us more of our precious Knuti…your pictures are great.

    Hugs to you,


  6. Liebe Lena,

    Danke fĂŒr deine Bilder aus einer anderen Zeit.

    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe

  7. Dear LeenaP,

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos with us. Knut was truly a uniquely intelligent bear. He was curious about things in his environment and his first thought was not how to destroy or eat them, but to investigate them.

    Hugs, Sarsam

  8. Liebe LeenaP,

    Vielen Dank fĂŒr deinen speziellen Fotos.

    Ein leiser GrĂŒss,

  9. LeenaP,

    Seeing these photos is like stepping back in time and feeling those wonderful, warm and exhilarating emotions Knut always evoked in me. There was always something about Knut that was so different, so ethereal, so unique. It’s little wonder he touched so many of us – we all recognized that otherworldly energy and we loved him deeply because we are all made from that energy. He reminded us of our Essence, pure and eternal.

    Thank you so much for sharing….

  10. Liebe LeenaP!

  11. Liebe LeenaP.

    Danke fuer so schöne Erinnerungsfotos.

    Es tut immer so viel leid.



  12. Liebe LENA P, Du gehörst zu jenen, die diesen ganz speziellen und doch so individuellen BLICK fĂŒr KNUT hatten! Deine FOTOs fand und finde ich immer noch mit am schönsten unter jenen, die KNUT auch fĂŒr mich am typischsten und mit liebevollem Auge wahrgenommen zeigen! Vielen Dank, dass Du immer wieder eine Deiner schönen Serien ausgrĂ€bst oder graben lĂ€sst. Es wird mir nie zu viel!

    Thank you, dear MERVI for showing LeenaP’s very appreciated KNUT-pictures again and again in KWM. I love them!

  13. Dear LeenaP,
