Alaskan Coastal Brown bear.....2

    Newer Older

    Alaskan Coastal Brown bear (Ursus arctos ) waving a friendly “Hi” whilst relaxing on the beach on the Katmai peninsula.
    In answer to several questions, Yes this image is real, and not digitally created.. This sub adult had just finished chasing fish in the creek inlet, and he lay down for a rest. Most of the time he laid on his belly, but for a short time he laid on his back and put on this show. I was on the beach with about 6 other people standing about 100 yards (metres) away. It was a precious moment.
