13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Tourists and Alaskan Brown Bears
This photo was taken during the summer of 2015 near the town of Haines, Alaska - a hub of bear viewing tourism in the US. The brown bear pictured is nicknamed "Speedy" by the locals and is a particular favourite of bear enthusiasts in the area. This photo shows a crowd of tourists photographing the bear and her cubs by the Chilkoot River.
