Glacier National Park, summer of 2012.


On this particular day we had the privilege of watching this big boar grizzly bear for about 30 minutes.


And I ended up with my first case of true lens envy!  lol


Still it was quite an exciting time for our family to watch this hungry guy do a bit of foraging while moving through.

    Great series! I believe I would be afraid to meet a bear………

  2. kewkew says:

    Wow, what great shots. I would be too scared to be that closed to a bear without something between us.
    Would love for you to stop by and share.

    You are a brave soul sticking around watching a grizzly.

  12. Awesome!
    I’ve never seen a Grizzly in the wild before.. just lots & lots of black bears here at home.
    I understand your lens envy.. there have been select times in life when I’ve been in similar situations & felt the same!

    Exciting to watch him ambling along! This is probably about as close as i would want to get to Mr. Grizzly, no matter the size of the lens! I have often had lens envy, but then I think about packing one of those huge lenses around. No, thanks!

  21. Leave It To Davis says:

    I’d be running the other direction! You are brave!

  22. That is a rather hunky guy! Good to see he is at a distance and happy with his world!

  23. Kiks says:

    wow..that is so brave of you to get to that proximity…

  24. Anne Payne says:

    Love this series of photos! What an exciting adventure to be able to see one of these beautiful beasts so close.

  25. How beautiful and serene this is..and what a treat to watch that bear from a distance. Thank you for linking in this week to Nature Notes..Michelle
