Winner: "Pointing Bear" By James Day


“With my photography, I always strive to capture wildlife doing something unique or interesting,” explains Day. “This photograph of a young bear was no exception since he was standing on his hind legs while he also appeared to be pointing as if giving directions. This photograph was taken at Lake Clark National Park, Alaska while I was staying at the Silver Salmon Creek Lodge.”

Nikon D610, Nikon 200-500mm f5.6 at 480mm. Exposure: 1/800 sec., f/8, ISO 800.
