Not to brag…

It’s not hard to find bears in Yellowstone.  This year daily showings between Tower Junction and Floating Island Lake.  The challenge is that there are few places to pull over.  And believe me the Park Rangers are all over that!  Only minutes after finding the Bears everyone is shoo’d away.  To add misery to the pain it’s been raining at the peak Bear sighting times of day.  It’s all good. Just have to stay away from the crowds and anticipate the best light/composition.

A mom and two cubs.  The cubs are in their second year.  Mom is a black bear.  The kids are cinnamon black bears.  Guess dad was a cinnamon.

When shooting the black bear in sunlight it’s always advisable to push the exposure slightly.


This is one of the two Cinnamon cubs.  Cute as ever.  They spend a lot of time in the dry fall.  Not a lot of opportunities to shoot.  I however really enjoyed watching them all afternoon.
