This image is one of my most popular wildlife images. When I ask most people who like it why they do, I’m met with a combination of comments about the iconic power of the bear looking out into an upcoming storm telling them a story. The story is often of intrigue and wonder. That’s how I felt when I saw it and got low to photograph the bear on the hill above me. I’m glad s//he was looking the other way and the wind was blowing in the right direction!
