Grizzly bears in Alaska
11

One of my favorite animals to photograph. I was lucky this year with many encounters, good light and a few different cameras to try out. Here are a few for those of you interested in viewing.

Very nice. Would you mind sharing where you went?  (I'm going to Lake Clark in June and hope to see them there.)

These were in Katmai National park, probably 100 miles south of the Lake Clark area.  Lake Clark is a beautiful area and park.

Nice shots, but I hope you're inside something safe. Some of those look awfully close for safety.

Thanks. I was in Katmai a few years ago, but less than a week too early for the salmon migration.  We got to see a few salmon fishing events, but none as special as yours.
