On the 17th of October the first snow fell in the Orsa Predator Center. Almost all the brown bears are already hibernating in their dens and on the 22nd even the last five bears decided it’s time for the Winter nap.

This one is enjoying the falling snow before retiring in the ‘bedroom’.

Wilb├Ąr took a last look at the Fall ….


…. soon the snow fell ….


…. and he can enjoy his favourite season again!


Snow leopard looks especially beautiful in the snowy surroundings.


A face study of the Kodiak bear Taquka. I think he looks quite ‘macho’ in this photo. When I’ve seen him he looked very friendly. ­čÖé

The lynx has an excellent ‘camouflage outfit’. Can you find the beauty in this photo? Hmmm, playing hide and seek with this cat would be quite a challenge! ­čÖé


Knuti’s Weekly wishes the brownies sweet dreams and a happy Winter time to all the animals and the keepers in Orsa!

  1. Liebe Mervi,

    in Orsa kann man sich auf p├╝nktlichen Schneefall verlassen!
    Da├╝ber freuen sich vor allem Wilb├Ąr, seine beiden Damen und
    der Schneeleopard.
    F├╝r die Braunb├Ąren ist er das Zeichen f├╝r die ├ťberwinterung in einer
    gem├╝tlichen H├Âhle. Das Portr├Ąt vonTaquka ist gro├čartig.

    Hilfe – ich finde den Luchs nicht!

  2. Dear Mervi!
    Hopefully winter and snowfall will stay in northern Sweden and Finland a while longer but I┬┤m happy for Hope, Ewa and Wilb├Ąr that they can enjoy their favourite season from now on.
    The photo of the snow leopard is great. It proves how effective their camouflage is.
    Taquka`s expression is quite scary. I hope his mood was getting better with the prospect of a cosy den…

    I think I┬┤ve found the lynx to the left of the rock but I┬┤m not sure…


  3. The bear in the video and in the pic ‘ORSA 6’ ist ‘ein Bild von einem B├Ąren: top-knuffig und kraftvoll!

    The pic of WILBÄR observing the last autumn colours across the pond is great, as mauch as the one is whre he shows this typical polar bear relaxed pose: wonderful!!

    This image of the first falling snow is fairytale-like and very beautiful.

    Hmm, I am afraid I am unable to etect the lynx in that last pic. Need HELP!

    Thank you, ear MERVI, for keeping us informed about WILBEAR and this beautiful predator Center in ORSA.

  4. Thank you for the nice pictures.
    Winter is knocking at the door.

  5. Liebe Mervi,
    das Eisb├Ąrenparadies zeigt sich bald in ganzer Pracht und ich w├╝nsche allen Bewohnern des Orsa-Parks
    einen sch├Ânen schneereichen Winter.
    Vielen Dank f├╝r die neuen Bilder aus Orsa
    Liebe Gr├╝├če Moni K

  6. Dear Mervi
    Although this is a bear treat from Orsa, the photos of the Snow Leopard and the Lynx are also wonderful.
    Taquka looks very serious. But Wilbaer in the snow is the Hammer!

  7. Liebe Mervi,

    danke f├╝r die Fotos aus Orsa mit den ersten Schneeflocken.

    Die Eisb├Ąren werden sich freuen, denn es werden noch sehr viele Flocken folgen.

    Den Brownies w├╝nsch eich eine sch├Âne Winterruhe.

    Liebe Gr├╝├če
