Thanks Marc! She was on high alert for boars in the area and the wind was blowing really strong and brought down 3 trees nearby and she heard every single one of them with the sound being blown away from her. Her actions had me reacting by staying inside my truck shooting out the window. She was extremely quick.

I don't know if you saw (news wise) a couple of weeks ago in Yellowstone, a griz with a fresh elk. Video of it being brought through the lake.
An aquantence photographer was there .. got some shots and video.
His video had it full, lazy griz after the meal trying to ward off the ravens.

Yes I saw that on FB and I can tell you first hand that along with seeing it in front of you live it's the sounds that go right through your skin! It's amazing how nature can command attention in an instant.

This is a wonderful set, Renee. I play with Black Bears all the time, but to see a Griz in the wild would be fantastic.

Thanks Roger! Living in the NW for so many years I got used to black bears and on a rare occasion would see a grizzly being I worked for the USFS. I think for me the major difference between the two photogenically is that the facial features of the griz can be seen much more than the black bears being its normally so dark. I like seeing that detail. (from a safe distance ;) )

This is a very good set
Thanks Piquet! She was born in front of the camera so very used to folks being around.

That gives a different impression of a "family day out"! A great composition, a lovely set of images which belong together.

Thanks Trevor. She's quite a beautiful bear and she has such a soft looking face which is a bit different look for most grizzlies. It's always a nice time photographing her.

Wow...very jealous of this. I really like your first one with mother and cub (who seems a little curious in you!).

Thanks! She was quite a long distance away and all of us photographers had our longest lenses out. She is a bear that was raised in front of the public and is completely used to seeing folks with cameras in their hands. Females make sure to keep their young near the roads where the public is to keep the boars (males) away from them so they don't kill the cubs. Grizzlies are pretty darn smart.

[/QUOTE
Yellowstone doesn't name the wildlife except an ID in reference to where they are located. So for the bear named Raspberry that's the name the public labeled her with but Yellowstone has her ID'd as Lake Butte Sow. As for the cub they will ID him or her when the are able to determine what sex it is and it will probably be associated with it's mothers ID. For now the public has called it Jam. Some have called it Coal in the past but most have referred to the cub as Jam to go with Raspberry, lol. Raspberry's first cub is the adult they now call Snow. It's a bit confusing at times. I hope that helps.
