“Caught in the act” by a Grizzly Bear

Grizzly swimming

Just when you think the grizzly bears you are viewing do not really know that you are there you get one that looks you right in the eye when caught taking a photo.  To put a human touch it would be “A little privacy if you don’t mind.”  The bears on the lodge’s tour up Knight Inlet tend to ignore our intrusion into their life.  In the spring and summer, while they are feeding on the beach they only acknowledge our presence if we get to close.  In the fall in the viewing stands on the Glendale River sudden movement, load noises or a cameras flash left on will get their attention. For the most part the grizzly is aware but chooses to ignore. Guest James O’Donoghue from the UK provided this photo.
