19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Finding water during the summer can be hard for the bears and other wildlife in the front range of Colorado. Under this rock however lies a small fresh water pool that is fed by a slow trickle. It's not a lot of water but it is enough to attract bears from far and wide. Here this curious bear is coming in for a drink while curiously looking to see who else is around.
