2021—Let Sleeping “Dogs” Lie

It’s probably a good idea to leave these sleeping “dogs” lie. The Kodiak Brown Bears we photographed last week look cuddly and reminded me of big dogs when they lay down to sleep. The bears were comfortable with our presence, so much so that they often slept in plain view of us and our cameras. But I don’t think it’s a good idea to disturb them. The claws on her front paws are warning enough to leave her alone.
