This bear was half way down the inlet in a place that I had never seen a grizzly. We stopped, turned and slowly approached the bear. The key is to take your time and go slowly and there is a good chance for close up photos.
The June 8th posting showed our boats with a pod of pacific whitesided dolphins playing in the bow wake and the prop-wash. If you stop the boat the dolphins often stop with you and come along side the boat and that is what this picture shows. Two dolphins less than one meter (yard) from the boat.
