Grizzly…

We are not only privileged enough to  live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, but to also have a variety of wildlife around.

We were fortunate enough to watch this sow grizzly with her cub for about 4 hours during one of our trips to Glacier Park this summer.  The interaction between this mama and her baby were so amazing.

Here, mama and baby were playing  and then headed to the water to cool off.

Lucky enough for the whole crew that mama and baby bear where quite a distance away and also got to enjoy the view…

Sometimes people just aren’t too bright.  I have seen what a hungry black bear has done to my sheep flock in one night which is whole ‘nother post.   But this is a big mama, G.R.I.Z.Z.L.Y, with a cub, no-less!    They are a marvelous, but oh-so powerful.

    Fantastic shots of the bears!

  2. What a fantastic experience. I agree, some folks think with their lens first and that can lead to a heap of trouble. Great captures one and all.

  3. Gunilla says:

    Amazing shots of the bears!

  4. Alison says:

    Great photos Erin! I have been enjoying all your pictures so much!

  5. Jennifer says:

    Amazing photos.
    People seem to assume that wild animals will not cross some sort of invisible barrier, that even in the wild, they are in some sort of zoo. They have no concept of animal behaviour and just how quick an attack can happen. Or how quickly you can scare animals away, which may be better for the humans, but just as unacceptable.

    Amazing images!Astounding that people can go so close.

  7. Kerri says:

    Awesome sights to behold!

  8. Incredible shots of this marvelous mama and cub. Can’t believe the stupidity of the other photographers. But then, I see this all the time here in the Colorado Rockies where I live. Not with grizzlies, but with bull elk during rut, and cows with their calfs in the spring. Tourists just don’t get it. Anyway, enough of that. Your photography is stunning. Well done.

    Wow, what a cool experience! The grizzlies are awesome bears to see and with cubs is even better. Great photos!

  10. I love to see how you teach your children to love nature and to treat it with the respect it deserves. Those other folks..well…foolish… What an amazing experience and what an honor to see that. Thank you for linking into Nature Notes ….I appreciate it..Michelle
