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.
