Zoltán Gergely Nagy - In the footsteps of bears


A young bear feasting on snow to cool down on a hot day in June, in the Retezat Mountains of Romania. The temptation of fresh grasses brings these omnivores up to the alpine zones from the forests below. Searching for them is an incredibly thrilling experience.


Most of the bears in Romania live similar lives, far away from humans, or actively trying to avoid them- yet very often these are the ones that seem to be the least talked about.
