.. went back to fishing and ignored us completely. It never ceases to amaze me how the grizzlies of the Glendale River have accepted our presence and as long as we remain stationary we become part of the background and are not a threat. That does not mean that the pepper spray was not ready to be used. I talked to the guests and the said that they did not feel threatened and that the bear seem calm and deliberate in it’s actions.
Soon the mother comes across the river and the young male retreats up the bank with its salmon. This is definitely a good move for our viewing as the bear in now about seven meters (yards) from our camera lens on the viewing platform. Moral of the story: “never mess with a mother grizzly with cubs” or “good photos are more often a result of luck than skill”.
