Spirit Bear British Columbia

By maggietear
I just fell in love with this female Spirit Bear, fishing for Salmon along this very fast-flowing river! She was aware of our presence but as she felt no fear from us she just carried on fishing.

I know she's a little soft but the weather and light was really bad; it was so special to see her, with the drip of water under her chin ! I even have her as my screen saver!

Thanks for all your comments

No matter that is a little soft Maggie, a special image
and such a gentle face...and an honour for you to witness
What a great shot, Maggie! A little softness is excusable for the sake of such a great image. I have never se end a blond colored bear.
