This time of the year always gets me thinking about one thing, well two actually. Fishing and Grizzly Bears. I have spent a lot of time over the years working up in Alaska with these big guys and have come to truly enjoy their company. Having been to McNeil River, Brooks Falls and Kodiak to photograph Grizzlies I can honestly say they are just a ton of fun to watch. Their behavior alone is hilarious and it does vary from one are to another as the territorial displays and salmon flows tend to change their behavior.
With all the other travels going on this year I wasn’t able to make it up to Alaska. That’s where the one benefit of the photographs and memories comes in handy.
