“A friend arranged a photo tour to Lake Clark National Park, Alaska, in order to photograph coastal brown bears,” says Christine Haines. “This was my second time at the park during the same time period. However, on this visit, we didn’t have as many bears digging for clams or young cubs to photograph. I was told that the mothers were keeping their cubs hidden because of the boar activity. Luckily, we had a fox that occasionally visited near our cabins. When I first saw her from my cabin window, she was resting on a moss-covered boulder, making for a good photo opportunity. I quickly grabbed my camera and took a few images before she went on her way. Seeing her was one of the highlights of my trip.”
