The photographer: David E. Masche of Lincoln Behind the lens: In July of last year, I was walking with the grizzlies in Hallo Bay at Katmai National Park in Alaska. We were in the bear’s environment, led by a local guide. Six of us took the six-hour journey, getting as close as 20 feet to the grizzly bears. We saw several adult grizzly bears standing up. They would stand up to see more or play/fight with fellow bears. In this photo they appear to be “shaking paws.” The photo was taken with a Nikon F7100 with Nikon 80-400mm VR lens. We had no weapons or bear spray.
