Oct. 19 Karen Caraballo caught this shot of a mother grizzly and her cub in Alaska's McNeil River Sanctuary in July. On her last day, Caraballo found the bear and her offspring grazing on grass. After eating, they found the log and took a nap. "This was a trip of a lifetime," Caraballo says. "An amazing experience to travel to no-man's land and sneak a peek into an unchanged past." She used a Canon EOS Digital Rebel with a 300 mm lens.
