Ah, my work week is over! I can finally relax a bit and also update my blog. So let’s see some more grizzly bears we encountered on our British Columbia trip last year! OK? This time I am featuring images of them dipping and dunking themselves in a cold mountain river.
This handsome fellow looks like he is sizing me up and trying to decide if I taste like fish! Ha-ha, I was safely standing up in the bear viewing station, so I wasn’t worried a bit. I introduced you to this area and showed pictures of the viewing station in the first post of this series. I even showed a picture from the perspective of where this bear was located in the river!
This was one of my favorite bears because he was so photogenic. I particularly love his face here because he reminds me of a soggy dog at bath time. Water is cascading off his chin, and there is even a trace of a smile!
This one was not fishing, but just crossing the river. Why? To get to the other side, of course, LOL!
Here’s another one caught in the act of a “bear paddle”!
I adore the look of intensity on one bear, looking for fish to swim past him. Do you see how his left front paw is poised in the water, right below his head?
This guy found a deep spot near the riverbank to sit and rest a little bit.
And this grizzly gave me a stunning portrait that I will remember always! What a beautiful teddy bear face!
I will wrap up this series next week. You won’t want to miss it!
P.S. I used a Nikon D90 for these photographs and a Nikkor 18-200mm lens. I also digitally enlarged and cropped some of the images.
