You might feel some semblance of distance and safety behind a glass window or a camera lens, but wildlife viewing works both ways. There are plenty of critters out there who are just as curious about you as you are about them. Just ask the grizzly bear pictured above!

Whether you're watching from the passenger seat of a car or through your living room window, just remember to exercise caution. After all, wild animals may be fascinating, but they are also unpredictable and must be treated with respect.
