There are more than 1,500 brown bears living on Admiralty Island. Most of them feed on grasses growing along the beaches of the islandís perimeter. Most of Southeastern Alaskan brown bears are known as coastal brown bears. (Those that live inland are called inland grizzly bears.) There is a beach at the head of Cannery Cover, only a few minutes from our fishing camp. We motored over to it every evening to wait for bears to come down towards the water to feed. On this evening, we found a feeding brown bear not far from the edge of the water. We cut the outboard motor, and glided silently through the high grass at high tide. At one point, this bear stopped feeding and looked squarely at us. I framed this wary bear with lots of grass around it to stress the ample food supply here, including some of the water to add context for our approach.
