Brown Bears

During the summer of 2007 I spent 2 months travelling in Scandinavia, mostly in Finland, and some of that time was spent on the Russian border in the heart of the forest watching wild Brown Bears. Looking beyond the clouds of mosquitoes from the safety of a wooden hide I was privileged to watch these bears as they came and went throughout the night. Sometimes they just walked straight past the hide, others would hang around for a while, occasionally meeting up with another bear and sometimes being friendly, sometimes not!
