Wildlife photography can be really peaceful in its own way: you're sitting in the wilderness, watching the wonder of nature, enjoying the quiet. Apparently, it can be so peaceful that even bears will sit down next to you to relax for a moment, which is exactly what happened to this photographer.
This video is a few years old, but it's just as impressive as it was when it first came out. Drew Hamilton was shooting bears catching salmon in a river in Alaska when one of them walked up beside him. Hamilton wisely remained calm and didn't do anything to incite the bear, filming it quietly. That's when the bear unexpectedly sat down next to him in an admittedly pretty cute way for a minute or so, seeming to survey the scenery and enjoy the fresh air. There was one tense moment as the bear turned to leave and walked directly behind Hamilton, pausing and turning toward him briefly, but it eventually continued on its way without an issue. You'll notice at the very end just how many bears were in the area when he pans back toward the river he was shooting. Stay safe out there!
