I want to know what’s best! Have fun rating all of my photos. After rating one, the next will automatically appear.
Pick 5 for the best, 1 for the worst you’ve ever seen!
We found this young male grizzly in Yellowstone National Park, just ten minutes after we had a fantastic photo session with a large male (you can see him here).
Unlike the first guy, we did NOT have this one to ourselves. He was right by the road and had drawn in a nice crowd, including a really easy going park ranger to keep everything safe.
Unfortunately, I didn’t really get any shots I liked before he went up into the woods and out of sight.
As luck would have it, we were geeking out with another photographer (at length, I might add) and after about a half an hour gab session, we noticed cars were starting to pull off up the hill. Was he back? We went up to take a look.
Sure enough, he had returned and the situation was MUCH better then the first round. In fact, I was able to grab quite a few nice moments with this guy.
Sure, there was a small crowd, but for the most part people were respectful of the bear and did a good job just letting him do his thing. In this photo, I think he just needed a break from foraging in the meadow. As he sat, he looked around and I was lucky enough to grab a shot of him looking in my direction.
