Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Denali Grizzly” by Carl Smith. Location: Denali National Park, Alaska.

“A fairly rare glimpse up close of a large grizzly sow,” described Smith. “She was about 75 yards away digging in the tundra. I set up my shot braced on the hood of the pickup truck I was riding in and was patient until she gave me this angle. I wanted to get the colors of her coat, as well as the mixed fall colors and snow around her. This was on September 17, and already wintry in the park. Her coat is magnificent, with no visible imperfections. She’s round and ready for winter.”
