A grizzly day…

I was very fortunate yesterday.  Steve Williamson, photographer extraordinaire, took me on one of his photo tours, a jaunt from Telegraph Cove to the headwaters of Knight Inlet.  We were on a boat handled by Tide Rip Tours and it took about two hours to cross to the mainland.  Almost immediately, we saw a few juveniles followed by a mother with two small cubs followed by three siblings about two years old!  Most of the people on the tour were avid photographers so they were getting the good shots.  I took these below with my little Nikon and you can see that we must have been close as it doesn’t have a huge zoom!  I reckon we were within about 30 yards of most of the bears.  It was a great day and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing these magnificent animals enjoying some early summer feeding in their natural habitat.
