“Beach Walk” – Photo Art Print P107
“This image shows what a coastal brown bear is supposed to look like…big round dish face, long claws, and big shoulder humps. I photographed this bear from a kayak with my assistant, Brien. While this bear was approaching in a very forceful manner, Brien and I were having a conversation about if this bear was coming for us. I thought we ought to back off a little bit, but Brien insisted we stay put. He said that this bear was not going to jump in and swim for us. He was in control of the kayak so I just kept photographing. Brien was correct. The bear came right up to the shoreline, looked at us and displayed its displeasure by stumping its front feet and woofing at us. But, it did not come in after us. We followed this bear along the shoreline, and eventually it jumped in the water. It had to swim pass a cliff dropping into the sea. By paddling along with the bear at a distance, we learned we could paddle our canoe much faster than this bear could swim (especially with the correct motivation like a swimming attacking bear).”
A brown bear walks the tide line along a cove in Glacier Bay National Park. Brown bears can be identified by a prominent shoulder hump, long curved claws and a rounded plate-like face. Note the piece of grass the bear is chewing on.
