Unfortunately many zoos have given up keeping brown bears. That’s why I’m so glad seeing these lovely brownies in Nuenen.

It looks like the bears are as glad as I am! See how elegantly they dance. 🙂

After the dancing it’s nice to just relax in the green grass.

The sun rays warm so nicely and make the fur shine in beautiful shades of brown.

This is what I call a totally relaxed bear. 🙂

Dreaming of honey …. or maybe a big salmon …..

When the brown bears are relaxing the white bears are more active.

Frimas and her daughter Elva.  Catch me if you can!

Wilbär looks quite happy although he would like to meet the ladies.

All in good time, dear Wilbär – all in good time!

OK, Patience is my middle name ….. but only in this case! I’m not as patient when it comes to my feeding time!

Stay chilly – be cool!

If the Summer days get too hot it’s great to jump into the cool water. Mind you – don’t jump into our pool – find yourself a pool of your own. 🙂

  1. Dear Hans!
    Thank you for the lovely pictures from Nuenen. The brown bears enjoyed the green grass and the sun shine.
    Frimas and her daughter active 🙂
    I hope Wilbär will join Frimas and Eva. He looks very good.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  2. Thank you very much dear Mervi and Hans.
    Best wishes to Wilbaer, Frimas and Elva.

  3. Best wishes to the brown bears too.

  4. Lieber Hans!
    Danke fĂĽr die herrlichen Bilder aus Nuenen.
    Ich vermisse unsere Braunbären im Berliner Zoo sehr und freue mich ĂĽber jeden Zoo der sie weiterhin liebevoll hegt und pflegt. Die Brownies in Nuenen sehen super aus und freuen sich des Lebens. Ich bin ein bisschen neidisch…
    Ich hoffe, dass der gutaussehende Wilbär bald Anschluss an die Damen findet. Das Porträt von ihm ist wunderschön! Frimas und ihre Tochter kommen noch gut miteinander klar – toll!
    Ich hätte bei diesen Temperaturen auch gerne einen Privatpool…

    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe

    Dear Hans!
    Thank you for the wonderful pictures from Nuenen.
    I miss our brown bears in the Berlin Zoo very much and am happy about every zoo that continues to lovingly care for them. The brownies in Nuenen look great and are enjoying life. I am a bit envious….
    I hope that the handsome Wilbär will connect with the ladies soon. The portrait of him is beautiful! Frimas and her daughter are still getting along well – great!
    I’d love to have a private pool in these temperatures too….

    Hugs
    Anke

  5. Lieber Hans,

    mir gefallen die Braunbären auch sehr gut, aber vielen Zoos scheinen sie nicht
    mehr attraktiv genug zu sein und das finde ich sehr schade!

    Es ist schön zu sehen, dass sich Mutter und Kind noch so gut verstehen,
    hoffentlich kann Wilbär auch bald in ihrer Gesellschaft leben.

    Vielen Dank fĂĽr dein Update aus Nuenen und liebe GrĂĽĂźe!

  6. Dear Hans and Mervi
