Grizzly Sow

She is the mother of the yearling in my last post. Less than a minute after this shot was taken, she charged a group of clueless tourists who were within 30 feet of the cub. She did not attack, however. Yellowstone National Park.

To think you almost got a shot of a tourist being eaten by this bear. You could have sold it to every newspaper in the country. I like this shot too and your position would be too close for me. V

Great photo and good notes. I'll deal, and often do, with black bears but not grizzles. Well done, Hal. Vote.

Thought you said you weren't seeing much!!! Terrific shot! We have seen many reckless tourists in Yellowstone.

Great distant shot Hal. Lots of dumb tourists out there it seems.

Terrific image, Hal. Tourist at 30 feet with a cub could have ended badly.
