Ma'a, grandmother Spirit bear on her way out of the river after salmon fishing in the Great Bear Rainforest corridor, near Harley Bay. She is a cream-coated black bear. Her son is pure black. The soft afternoon light illuminates her golden yellow fur. Over the six days spent in the Rainforest she was the bear most often seen.
