Spirit Bear

To atone for my earlier post snafu, I bring you one of my prize photographs from my trip to the Great Bear Rainforest in September 2013. The Great Bear Rainforest, in British Columbia, Canada, is one of the largest coastal temperate rain forests in the world, and home to the spirit bear.

The spirit bear, also called the Kermode bear, is not a polar bear or an albino. It is a white variant of the North American black bear; kind of like red hair in humans. About 100 of the bears are thought to exist. You can read more about the spirit bear here.
