The Kodiak bear (Ursus arctos middendorffi), also known as the Kodiak brown bear or the Alaskan grizzly bear or American brown bear, occupies the coastal areas and islands of the Kodiak Archipelago in South-Western Alaska. It is the largest subspecies of brown bear. This is one of my very favorite bear pictures. Look into the eyes. There is neither malice or fear. Only a calculation or intelligent curiosity of what he is look at.
