Anyone who has been around here for a while knows I can’t pass up a good wildlife photo. You probably also know I can’t pass up a good reflection picture. So when those opportunities coincide, I am a happy camper. That is exactly what happened when we were on the tidal flats in Silver Salmon Creek Alaska and this very blonde brown bear was out clamming in the morning light. Her coat is very ragged (she hasn’t completely scrapped off last years winter coat), she was quite muddy, but she gave us this very nice photo op. For anyone interested in the particulars of this bear, she is about 4 years old and is quite small for her age. Our guide told us that she had only recently developed the skills to clam so he was hopeful that would enable her to add some weight on. Lightweight or not – she has a great career in modeling ahead of her…..
