15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Kermode Bear also known as a Spirit Bear due to its whitish coloring. Rare sighting along the ocean seashore. A recessive gene within the black bear population gives this bear its color. Staking out the shoreline near a salmon stream in a zodiac this bear appeared and we followed it for a long time in the rain.
