12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Wild North American Black Bear portrait in fall golden rods

"Heart of Gold" I personally named this image this as the this was taken at what is known as the golden hour just before sunset. The golden grasses frame her beautifully and the expression of this bear seems to exude tenderness
