This first one is not beautiful, but it IS unusual in that it provides a rare detail from the "Beaver Valley" section of Nature's Wonderland (notice the beaver in the water, swimming away from us). Mr. Beaver needs to switch to a non-sudsing detergent. A fun detail is the bullfrogs on the logs… I wonder if passengers on the Mine Trains could hear the frogs croaking?
Over in Bear Country, we see those soggy old bears again. I've always wondered how they managed protect the mechanisms inside the bears from the constant exposure to water. I'll bet there were times when they didn't move… but a static bear worked almost as well. In the foreground we see the concentric ripples left behind by a leaping trout.
Other bears relax on shore, presumably full of fish and ready for a nap. I guess the light-brown guys are supposed to be cubs?
