Alaska – Favorite (and last) Bear


I thought I’d post this photo of one of my favorite Bears from our trip.  This guy was out all by himself on the tidal flats clamming as we were waiting for airplane to come pick us up from the beach.  We first walked out without cameras just to spend some time with the bear before we left.  After about 10 minutes we all realized that this was a special bear – both very photogenic and very cooperative in posing as he was going about his searches on some of the rocky areas of the flats.  We ran about a quarter mile back to the beach to get our cameras and spent about 20 minutes with him before the tide started coming in (quickly).  It was a great way to end our stay with the bears and the perfect bear to provide the final fond memory of our week.

What a great Bear!!

  5. I am loving these photographs of your wildlife! Please tell me you’ve been entering competitions!? If it’s ok with you I would like to feature you on my blog which focuses on creative and inspiring photographers. Featuring you would involve using a couple of your photographs (so my readers can take a look at what you’ve done) and if you would be so kind, an interview perhaps? I would love to know more and I am certain my readers would like to know more too! Let me know! 🙂

    • Tom,
      Thank you so much for your interest. I haven’t really entered any serious competitions although I’ve gotten some decent results on some of the challenges at dpreview. I also have gotten a few of my photos published. I may get around to doing more as I continue to add to my portfolio – but so far its been more of a pastime and hobby. I’d be glad to discuss your ideas for a feature – I’ll email you. Thanks!
      Scott

  6. I think this is the Tyra Banks of bears. He’s definitely posing for you!

    I’ve loved all of your bear photos, but this one is extra special.
