This portrait of a dominant male Brown bear was taken in the Finnish Taiga forest.
Mosquitos were surrounding the bears as they crossed the swamp land.
Thanks for looking,

Thanks to everyone for all the recent c&c's on my images Smile

He's still alive ! Distinctive male with that scar across his snout Lee. This individual woke me from my slumber at 1.00am in the mornig sniffing around my hide !!! ( I had fallen and was bleeding from a chin cut too !!) He is massive, I saw him two years ago.

A fine shot Lee. I'm a sucker for bears anyway, and it's nice to read Ron's comment and see some continuity in the population.
