19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Brown Bear Chase

This brown bear was digging for clams along the Alaskan coastline when another, younger bear approached too close. Not wanting the younger bear to infringe on his clamming, the older bear proceeded to chase off the younger bear. There was water and mud flying everywhere as the two bears ran across the flats.
