This Coastal Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) female had an unusual approach to mating.  When the big male in the background approached her, she ran away.  Several times.  That didn't deter him.  After a while, though, he appeared to get tired and he sat down.  Then the female started strutting past him, apparently oblivious to his presence.  Hallo Bay, Katmai National Park, Alaska.
