Many times I have photographed this bird.  The Great Blue Heron.  Big, beautiful and difficult to photograph.  It’s a game of who see’s who first.  This was a location near the Tetons in very early spring.  Advantage Jim.  The only landing area was the only thawed pool in the area.  I camped motionless waiting for the landing.  The first few were touch and goes.  A fun afternoon in sub zero weather.

A whole day with this mother.  The Black Bear had two new cubs the year of this photo.  A very long lens made it possible to watch and photograph from a safe distance.  With her several nursing’ and multiple naps made for an interesting day as a photographer/admirer.  Here attention never left me for long periods.  This nap on the rock was a true expression of how tiring it may be raising and protecting two new cubs.
