Alaska – A Bear of a Reflection


We didn’t have much great weather while at Hallo Bay but we did have one morning which had some sun and blue sky before it disappeared again before noon.  Luckily, that morning we decided to walk down the beach to see what was going on before heading towards the meadows.  This photo shows the lone bear that was out on the clamming area that morning.  He was considerate enough to position himself directly behind some residual pools on the tidal flats.  This of course yielded some great reflection shots – I hope you enjoy this one.  It looked to me like he was either trying to figure out who that was staring back at him, or he was checking his hair to make sure it was suitable for the photographic session….
