There is a lot of wildlife in Alaska, but you often don’t get a chance to photograph these creatures up close and personal. We spent an afternoon at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center near Portage, Alaska watching and learning about the animals who roam the wilds of this magnificent state.

We were there in time for the afternoon black bear feeding. They seemed to enjoy their king salmon feast.
