I started out as an artist, became a pilot, and ended up where I am now: nature photographer and educator. Being a pilot allowed me to observe the Earth and humanity’s impact on it from 30,000 feet for many years. It allowed me to experience different cultures and to see the world through many lenses.

    Lovely close up shot! It is interesting to notice how he blends in to the tree behind him and how one might not notice him until he moved! The dry foreground grasses nicely frame him. Perhaps he isn’t a he, but sure looks like a he to me! Looks like a large Black bear! : )

  • Thank you Sandy…As for being a male or female bear, I’m not sure either and had no intention of finding out :-)

    Even with a long lens, this would be a thrill! There’s an eye contact group here on RB…sure seems this would fit over there! Great shot of a neat bear! :)
