Bears are amazingly fast.  The grizzly and black bear can reach speeds of up to 35 to 40 mph.   And all bears can climb and are therefore associated with trees.  Trees are a powerful and ancient symbol, as is the bear, and both are links to the Heavens and the Earth.

The Bear is the epitome of the protective mother.  She represents your hidden  strength.  Bear says to look inward in order to know ones self.  Her medicine  awakens the power of the unconscious.  Bear’s  cycle of power is the spring and summer.

The eagle is believed to be a sacred messenger, carrying our prayers to the Creator and returning with gifts and visions for the people. It's cycle of power is year-round and daytime.  Its message speaks of the illumination of spirit, healing and creation.

When you have the wolf as a spirit animal, it could be an expression of your sharp intelligence and strong instincts. ( Must be me ) The wolf symbolizes a strong connection with instincts and when it appears as a animal spirit guide, it could point to a way of perceiving and understanding the world around you that works similarly.

Ducks are associated with the element of water. They are good deep water swimmers and also are content to glide on top of a body of water. As a totem the duck teaches getting in touch with your deepest emotions in order to get to a calmer state.

Very nice photos from your day at the zoo. I especially liked the polar bear pictures. Wonderful reflection pictures. I wish Columbus Zoo were closer to me; I'd visit too!

Loved the zoo tour. Loved the Shel Silverstein poem. Lovely teddy bear collector there in those pictures. (I was going to put in the word you used, but by the time I got to the comment form I'd already forgotten it!).

Thanks for the tour Joe, you're a good guide!
