Artist's Description

I’m finally finding time to edit some of the photos I took on our trip to Alaska in August. My telephoto zoom lens gave me the opportunity to capture this grizzly bear from a distance as he was walking toward us. Grizzly bears are also known as Alaskan brown bear or Kodiak bear. Lewis & Clark first named it to be grisley or “grizzly”, meaning “grizzled”; that is, golden and grey tips of the hair. Nonetheless, after careful study, naturalist George Ord formally classified it in 1815 – not for its hair, but for its character.

Canon EOS REBEL T2i f/18, 1/500, ISO6400, 400mm on a crop sensor 650mm equivalent.
