Very chilled! Smiling polar bear lazily floats belly-up in a pool of water

A polar bear has been pictured lazily floating belly-up in a pool of water.

The bear is just a year old and lives with its mother in a zoo in Hanover, Germany.  

The photographs were taken by keen wildlife photographer Antje Wenner-Braun at the Hannover Adventure Zoo in Northern Germany.

Mrs Wenner-Braun, 56, said: 'These bears have a spacious area with lots of water, meadows and places to relax.

'He loves the water, as you can see in the pictures.

'I think he has everything he loves, so he's happy and having fun.'

The male bear could weigh as much as ten men when fully grown.

Mrs Wenner-Braun said: 'This was a very special moment for me. I think this bear was tired and had to rest - but often they rest in their retreats and can't be seen.

'The emotions of the animals always touch me very strongly.

'Wildlife photography is my passion. I often stay for hours with the species that fascinate me.

'To take extraordinary pictures of the animals, you need to spend a lot of time with them.'
