Sleeping BearSLEEPING BEARSleeping Bear is by far the most popular of all of our images, and its story is quite unique. This was Rick's first trip to the McNeil River Game Sanctuary deep in the heart of the Alaskan Peninsula. He had spent the previous four days photographing and observing numerous bears actively fishing for spawning salmon at McNeil Falls. It soon became apparent that the bears' behavior was fairly predictable and followed a certain pattern. They would fish and immediately consume their catch - some would eat it in the water, while others would bring their prize to shore or up onto the surrounding bluffs to eat in peace, free from aggressive behavior by more dominant bears. This process would be continued until the bear apparently became sated, then it would amble off into the nearby brush to catch 40 winks. This routine was repeated pretty much continuously all day. Now comes our 'Sleeping Bear', who was affectionately called Yolanda. As with each bear, she had her own particular style for fishing, along with her favorite location at the Falls. Yolanda would snare a fish, bring it to a shallow pool next to the Falls, then leisurely sit to consume it. As fate would have it on this particular occasion, she may have been too tired to head off to her normal snooze location - so she simply cuddled her most recent catch and fell sound asleep while sitting in her favorite stream-side pool. This was truly a one-in-a-million shot. Click on this Image to go directly to Gallery for more viewing or ordering options
