Grizzly playing in the water
Photographer: Steven Zakem
Location: Great Bear Rainforest, Klemtu, British Columbia
Story: 
On a Spirit Bear and Grizzly Bear photo trip. We came upon this bear feeding on salmon. As we approached in a flat bottom boat, first he picked up a floating branch and began to paly with it. Then he picked up his back paws and showed them to us. He "entertained us" for about 45 minutes, always keeping an eye on us. The question that we asked is: would he had done this if we had not been there to watch?
