Light, timing, and the temperament of this 500 pound Grizzly Bear all helped the photographer to capture this moment on film.  Grizzlies once flourished throughout the continental United States, but now they number only about 200.  Alaska is the last stronghold of Grizzlies, with an estimated population of about 14,000. But even in Alaska one has a greater chance of being struck by lightning than being attacked by a Grizzly Bear.
