A real estate agent from Steamboat Springs, Colo., got more than he hoped for on a trip to Alaska.

Kevin Dietrich was watching a momma grizzly catch some salmon in Chugach National Forest when her young daughter stood up and looked straight at him.

‘I certainly never dreamed I’d get an image of (a grizzly) ‘waving’ at me while standing in a river waiting for it’s mother to bring back a salmon,” Dietrich says. “My reaction was one of pure excitement and disbelief.”

His photograph has become a favorite today in British media.
