My first bear encounter

Today I drove all day through Yellowstone National Park. It was a long day and I was really hoping to find a lot of wildlife... well I did not, other than buffalo and one elk, five hours of driving was not worth it. Don't read me wrong, Yellowstone is beautiful but in my opinion Grand Teton is much better. The funny thing is that after all day looking for wildlife, it was near my campsite in the Tetons that I found my first bear of the trip. I went for a short walk on a trail near the lake and there he was, a small grizzly eating grasses on the woods. I did not surprise him so he kept on eating and I started following him a little with my long lens. It was awesome and maybe I am just a fool but I was not scared at all. I am sure if it was a full blown grizzly maybe I would have felt different. We will see, I am sure that situation will come sooner or later in Alaska.

Mi primer encentro con un oso en Gran Teton, precioso.

 

I have not spent a lot of time developing these images but I think they will give you an idea of close I got to it.

 

 

 

 

 

I love the Tetons, this is paradise.

¡¡¡Pero si es un cachorrico!!! :) Me recuerda a Jacky, o era Nuca?

Bueno, espectaculares fotos, y muy buenos los posts. Llévate a Olloqui a Alaska, de cebo, por si te sale un oso más grande.

¡Un abrazo!

Wow! You are brave to be so close to wild life. I just looked at everything you've posted. You are on a fabulous excursion and seem to be loving every bit of it. I was almost out of breath walking with you on the one trail! Your photography is great. Even greater than your photos is the sense that you are finding yourself and enjoying life! Keep it up!
Love,
Karen

Be Careful my friend. Juvenile Bears are the most dangerous. His exile makes you easy pickens. I would not want to remember you as Carlos the burrito.:) The speed at which they move when they want to is ridiculous.
