Grizzly Bear Napping

Brown bear napping in Alaska

We spent quite a lot of time around a male bear we named “Charlie”.  Like many of the large males, he was very calm and relaxed and always a joy to be around.  I often feel most comfortable around the really big males, since they are so secure with their position at the top of the food chain, that they can’t be bothered to even look at a human – we are so small and insignificant.  We caught him taking an afternoon nap sprawled out in the meadows surrounded by grazing females.

I like this photo since you can see the soles of his large feet.
