Artist's Description

We were on Gribbell Island in the Great Bear Rainforest of western British Columbia, Canada looking for “special” black bears (Ursus americanus). You see, Gribble is a special place where Spirit Bears live. Spirit Bear is the name given to 1 out of 10 Black Bears who have a recessive gene that causes them to have white instead of black fur.

So while we waited out those odds, a “regular” black furred bear emerged from the forest, followed the flowing water downstream and showed us his special grace and talent, balancing on slippery rocks on the tips of his toes.

Shot handheld using:
Canon EOS 40D with Canon EF75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM lens
