Great shot. I will never read the word Katmai again without thinking of my favorite book, The Blue Bear. It is the true story of the author, Lynn Schooler, and his friendship with the most famous wildlife photographer of the day, Michio Hoshino. It is a wonderful true story of searching for and photographing wildlife, Alaska, and Michio. You might enjoy it. This image catapulted back to the pages of the book and the beautiful landscapes that come alive.

Catapulted me back. What a great trip it must have been. Thanks for sharing such a hard-to-get image of an animal most of us will never see.Write a comment
