Brown Bear Shake Off

Brown Bear Shaking Off Water, Lake Clark National Park, AlaskaI was in a great position down on the ground to get this shot of a brown bear shaking the water off her fur after a morning of fishing. It was still quite early, but the tide was getting too high to fish so she and her two cubs were on their way to the open fields where grass was on the menu.

    I’m starting to think these bears are just big Jim Henson characters. . . except that I can see his hind legs.
