Keri Russell stands with her back against a large tree in a forest. She wears a bright pink shirt dress with a  white sling bag. Russell looks out the corners of her eyes, trying to see the other side of the tree without moving. She seems to be hiding. trying to stay as still as possible. On the other side of the tree is a large black bear sniffing the branches. It has its paws up against both sides of the tree, bracing itself on its two legs.
