I just love bears as a subject matter, and I love this photo, so I had to repost it.
A wolf biologist in Yellowstone NP was airborne when he came across this grizzly over a bison kill while studying a wolf pack. What an incredible stare down by that grizzly as he stands guard over the carcass.
It is believed that the bison was killed by another bull bison during the rut while trying to lure one of the ladies. The wolf pack was off to the side waiting for an opportunity for the leftovers.
It would seem that the biologist and the pilot are taking some flack for getting so close to the big bruin, but I don’t see any signs of harrassment in that bear’s face.
