2022—Please Bear With Me

Please bear with me as I post yet another photograph of a Kodiak Brown Bear. This is the last Kodiak Brown Bear that we photographed on our visit to Kodiak Island this past May. It was such a memorable trip and on our last evening there we stopped along the Uganik River to photograph the bear we called Barnacle Bear. While we watched Barnacle Bear, this young bear approached uneasily from behind us, scurried by, then proceeded to graze on the barnacle covered gravel as the sun began to sink just a bit. It was just after 9PM and seeing and photographing this bear was a delightful conclusion to our two weeks on the island.
