View from the bush plane looking down on Hallo bay in Katmai National Park, Alaska. The five tiny dots in the meadows, bottom right of photo, are grizzly bears. Looking from above you can really see the two types of grass that grow in Katmai’s coastal meadows. Where the bears are standing is sedge grass, surrounded by the taller grass which the bears never eat.

A grizzly bear digs for clams side by side with a clamming red fox. Foxes will dig for their own clams, in addition to eating smaller bits of clam meat left behind by the bears. Foxes may nibble on the meat left stuck to the clam shells by the bears. Cubs also eat this meat when following their mothers around the mud flats.
You can also just barely make out a group of bear viewers standing behind the grizzly bear.
Enjoy this lovely compilation of photos from 2009 taken in Katmai National Park by expert Bear Viewing guide Brad Josephs.
