Grizzly Habitat

A great bonus yesterday was seeing a momma grizzly and her two cubs. The cubs ran off into the bush right away, but momma hung out for a bit. I was only planning to go to IKEA today, so had only a slightly wide-angle lens with me for a quick snap if need be. Well, off to the Forestry Trunk Road we go (slight detour – 😉 )and wouldn’t you know, here are the grizzlies! I thought about cropping the image to show off the bear a bit better, but then had second thoughts. Most of us know what a grizzly looks like close-up from magazines/books/television, etc. I thought I would leave this one alone and show the beautiful creature in it’s habitat. I like it this way!

  1. Wonderful image, agree you need the sense of location space and place which you have achieved so well. Love the fact it was IKEA or this!!!!! Beautiful shot :)))

    • Hey Lesley, thanks you the kind words. It wasn’t an “or” thing, but an “and” thing. So we got our shelves from IKEA and then decided on the scenic route home.
