Dancing Bears, Kamchatka, Russia
$500 – $5,000
Kamchatka has the highest concentration of brown bears in Russia, and Kuril Lake has the highest concentration in Kamchatka. Its 14,000 rivers and streams support six species of salmon, which provide the essential food base for them. The Kamchatka brown bear is a very large species – the largest in Eurasia. With a body height of up to 3 metres tall on hind legs and a weight of 650 kilograms or more, it is nearly the size of the Kodiak Bear in Alaska. These two bears were playing rough at Kuril Lake, a caldera and crater lake that is referred to as “the kingdom of the brown bear”. Kuril lake is the best place to photograph these bears in their natural habitat, as they gather in the hundreds during the summer months to enjoy the tasty salmon.
