Description

My wife and I go out to the Potter Marsh Wildlife Refuge quite often to walk. This was late in September on a kind of stormy day. It was questionable on whether we'd go out that day but decided to chance it. God rewarded us with this rare site. A brown bear in Potter Marsh that close to town. The storm was to the east & north of us and was rolling in pretty fast, while to the west and south, there were still some sunbeams in play. I managed to set up this shot, again being patient, and waited until she was lit up by the sun, IN the golden grass of the marsh, and giving me this great profile.
