It was hard to get a good shot of this Japanese fish eagle. It is the largest bird of prey in Japan - a bit larger than a bald eagle. This one was rescued after it broke its wing. The wing healed, but he can't fly well enough to be released.

Vera loves bears. This guy was really active, swimming back and forth in the cool water.
