Interesting Photo of the Day: Incredible Selfie With a Bear

One  man, his camera, and a grizzly: these are the bear necessities for the ultimate selfie. The best part is that the female grizzly looks poised and ready for the snapshot taken by nature photographer Paul Souders, in Katmai National Park and Preserve:

The 4 million acre national park of Southern Alaska is famous for its brown bears. The reserve is home to some 2,200 bears, making it the largest population of protected brown bears in the world.

Souders visited the geographically and ecologically diverse area to photograph the bears in their natural habitat—from catching wild salmon in famous Brooks Falls, grazing the plains, and apparently, posing for selfies with new friends.

    I would title this image “Dumbshit of the day.” It’s not a teddy bear and it is idiots like this that cause bears to become habituated. It is a wild animal – show some respect or go to a zoo you moron.
