Brown Bear – Having A Look

Having A Look

     During their wanderings through tall grass, Alaskan Brown Bears periodically peruse the panorama by rising up on their hindquarters.  Whether the maneuver to ‘have a look’ is done out of plain curiosity, to assist where they are navigating, to avoid a surprise close encounter with one of their own, or any combination thereof, the stance isn’t always held very long.

     This one gave me enough time to catch it having a look before it abruptly dropped back down.
