17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
A brown bear (grizzly) cub standing checking me out.

3 colleagues and I charted a float plane and went to Pack Creek to view grizzly bears. We heard the sow with 2 cubs were walking up the beach toward us. We were watching the beach but they surprised us and came up behind us. This cute cub was checking us out. He was trying to hide in the grass.
