Spirit in the Shadows

A beautiful male Spirit Bear in the Great Bear Rainforest is hanging out in the shadows along the shoreline, maybe hiding from the sun.

 

This Spirit Bear was teasing us by fishing further upstream but not really close enough to photograph.  But our patience paid off, and eventually he made his way down toward us, and ended up eating fish eggs right in front of us.
