Memphis, TN Zoo. I rarely take pics of the animals at the zoo unless I find something compelling about their expression or the lighting. The lighting is what enticed me to take this picture.
It's an old image, but I have never shared it before. The thing about this image, besides the lighting, is that a viewer's eye is normally drawn by bright, in focus subjects.
While my eyes are drawn to the meerkat in the background, they are consistently drawn back to the out of focus meerkat in the foreground because it is looking at me.
I thought that made for a interesting image.

The Detroit Zoo has a very nice exhibit of Arctic life; I was last there in 2008.

The exhibit's approach gives us a view of this:

IMAGE: https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/YWwTHy.jpg

It's not immediately apparent what you'll be witnessing until you wind your way
down and underground, where you enter a large space with a tunnel at the end:

IMAGE: https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/2h7QLE.jpg

I didn't understand what everyone was geegawing at, pointing up,
until I came across this view:

IMAGE: https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/sKmkNR.jpg

IMAGE: https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/AUQzwa.jpg

Well, I was rather dumbfounded by this: a Polar Bear walking upon an acrylic tube
directly above my head!

I felt rather bad for the bears, as the early-September day was very warm,
but I was glad they had the water to cool off in:

Wow, I'm getting old.
I posted this same stuff before, in this very thread, so my apologies.

It seems the guy is done, while the gal seems frustrated. ;-)a

Our zoo's Polar bear enclosure was upgraded a few years ago and very similar to yours. I like going to the glass tunnel at feeding time.
