Alaskan photographer Drew Hamilton was out enjoying the scenic views along a river when he was joined by an unusual visitor.
Hamilton’s nature shoot was cut short after a giant brown bear took a liking to the photographer, sitting down right next to the man. The friendly bear can be seen taking in the view with his new friend as they watched a few of its bear buddies splashing about in the water.
“Hey dude, you mind if I take a seat next to you?”
Most people would have freaked out and run away from the giant creature, but Hamilton could sense the bear meant him no harm.
After a while, the gentle giant just wandered away. Check it out in the video below!
