18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Alaskan Brown Bear in Lupines

I was on a photo tour in Lake Clark National Park. It was a group of 8. We went out after supper to look for bears. Our local guide said that many times a bear would come to the lupine patch as dusk to eat roots. We headed to the area and waited.
