photographing and learning about wildlife
This family of Brown bears were seen between 12 midnight and 2am in the light of the Arctic summer where it has 24 hour daylight during the months of May to early August. As seen on these photos the colour of the Brown Bears fur can vary between a very light brown to almost Black.
Seen from the Hide of the Martinselkonen wilds centre in the middle of the Taiga forest, Suomussalmi on the Russian border. This is a dense Pine and spruce forest where the bears find most of their food including berries and fish.
