Brown Bear in heat at midnight

Photo and caption by Keijo Leppala

During the heat period a male Brown Bear was chasing after this female over a field. Finally she managed to climb away to a very high tree. She kept on going for some more feet higher. The adult male Brown Bears are so heavy that they can not climb higher in tree than what you see in the photo. Females on the otherhand are lighter and can climb high up. This was shot about midnight in north of Finland when it is quite bright in beginning of summer, but still needed to use iso25600 to get this shot.

Location: Pirttivaara, Suomussalmi, Finland
