GRIZZLY (URSUS ARCTOS HORRIBILIS), LAKE SUPERIOR ZOO, DULUTH, MINNESOTA, JUNE 18, 2012

Only ten feet separated me from this enormous grizzly when I snapped his portrait, but an inch of plate glass kept us honest. The celebrated Lake Superior Zoo in Duluth is old-fashioned, with bars and heavy wire mesh separating most of the wildlife from visitors and making photography difficult, but a little patience at some exhibits yields good results.
