Brown Bear, Finland

Photograph by Randall Ward

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animals

This young European brown bear posed so cutely for us. We couldn't ask for a more precious and natural expression. The taiga forest is in Finland on the Russian border and is a marvelous spot for viewing these bears.

This photo and caption were submitted to the 2008 International Photography Contest. See photo galleries and play jigsaw puzzles of images from more than 105,000 submissions.
