Coastal Katmai is famous for its large brown bear population. They forage voraciously during the rich and productive summer season, enjoying clams, fish, berries, and other plants, as they pack on the fat for a winter hibernation. This bear had walked through camp early one morning, so we grabbed our camera gear and followed it into a meadow filled with purple, blossoming lupine wildflowers. While there were great possibilities, the busy bear gave little attention to us, and offered only a few profile shots. This is one of them.
