Alaskan Coastal Brown Bear, Lake Clark National Park, Alaska

The Alaskan coastal brown bears of Lake Clark National Park, in Alaska, are always a joy to photograph. The bears are much larger than their grizzly bear cousins in the lower forty-eight states of the United States, as they have an endless amount of fish to gorge upon for a couple months out of the year.

The goal of most photographers visiting Lake Clark National Park, is to capture these magnificent bears running and splashing through the water while they fish for the incoming migrating salmon along the coast. However, venturing away from the coast sometimes, even during rainy conditions, results in great opportunities.

Similar to the way I had tuned-out the rain, this young cub, who was fat from a large salmon dinner, did not let the weather get her down and decided to put on a show, rolling through the clovers as if it were a beautiful spring day.
