Brown bear on the other side of a tree branch

This shot was taken using a camera trap. I was set up to try to get a capture of a fox on this tree branch, but instead got this gorgeous, blonde grizzly bear on my camera. Camera trapping is always full of excitement, and surprises. It is one of my favorite methods of photography as I feel it has the potential to yield engaging and powerful imagery.
