ALASKAN BROWN BEAR
McNeil River State Game Sanctuary, Alaska, USA

Glen Echo, Maryland, USA
“This bear was lying in the middle of the tundra enjoying a break in the rainy weather. I proceeded with caution as I angled for the shot, knowing that bears, just like people, have their personal space. Utilizing the best light in many days I captured this amusing image.”
