Today's Photo Of The Day is "Playful Cub" By Linda Fuller.
"We visited Silver Salmon Creek Lodge at Lake Clark National Park, Alaska, from late June to early July," explains Fuller. "You are not allowed to walk the park without a guide. The guides are knowledgable in bear behavior and ensure that you see the bears close, but safely. The cubs were very playful with each other, Mom and sometimes found objects. This cub found a feather to amuse itself. It was the experience of a lifetime. I never dreamed we would get so close to bears and came home with a number of beautiful photos."

Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage and several images from the Assignment Gallery are picked to be featured in The Best Of Assignments section in the print magazine.
