Brown Bear roaming the taiga
Brown Bear roaming the taiga

My next big trip was to Wild Brown Bear in Finland. I’d been to this place before and spent most of my time in the open area near a small pond. However, Brown Bears are mostly forest animals, so this time I wanted to spent more time in a forest hide. Disadvantages of this approach are that there is less light and less visibility because of the trees. We were quite lucky with the weather, so there was enough light and the bears showed nicely. This way I managed to get a more complete story of these magnificent animals of the taiga. I really like this picture as the bear just seems to roam the forest, unaware of us watching, just as they do all the time.
