Yep. We got ‘em.
The Secret is to know where and when.
This guy was photographed on the Bow Valley Parkway in Banff Nat’l Park.
The good news is that they tend to frequent the same areas.
This fella’ loves dandelions.
The Bow Valley Parkway is a short two lane drive that goes to Lake Louise.
If you’re there at the right time of day there’s a reasonable chance that you’ll spot one of these.
Bears are like people and they all have their own ‘personalities’.
I’ve been very fortunate in my travels and never encountered a bear with a bad agenda.
You never know when you’ll cross paths with these guys, you always need to be alert.
As mentioned I put the longest lens I have on my camera and wrap the strap around the headrest in my van.
You’re as close to being ready as you can be.
You never get much time to get organized.
I had this guy, all to myself for the better part of an hour.
A very lucky day.
