Grizzly bear
Photographer: Andrew Skinner
Location: Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, British Columbia, Canada
We were heading down the Atnarko River on a row boat and as we turned through the bend of the river we saw these two young bears. Having recently left their mother, they frolicked in the water for some time. Gradually what started of as play fighting became more aggressive as they tested each others strength.During this test of strength I was able to capture some interesting posture and behavior.
