The bears at Kamchatka are the same as grizzlies at Alaska. The lake Kurylskoe where the picture was taken is difficult to access by land, and it's a piece of untouched nature. The lake is full of salmons and bears are feeding here before the winter. I've taken a lot of pictures, but unfortunately the other best one was already used in Adventure challenge.
