With harsh weather com­ing, early fall is an im­por­tant feed­ing time for Canada’s griz­zlies. Af­ter thriv­ing all sum­mer on berries, roots and grasses, along with in­sects, car­rion and the oc­ca­sional small mam­mal, coastal griz­zly bears stake out salmon runs for a wel­come and es­sen­tial change. See Hin­ter­land Who’s Who (hww.ca) for more. This im­age was cap­tured by pho­tog­ra­pher Richard Ecker, near Ter­race, British Columbia. Like many images in the mag­a­zine, it was orig­i­nally sub­mit­ted to the Cana­dian Wildlife Fed­er­a­tion photo con­test. Visit cwf-fcf.ca to en­ter monthly and an­nu­ally.
