Hi Everyone,
Well I'm back after a short trip to Hyder, Alaska. We had a good time and have a few more images to share. This Grizzly cub was enjoying the fruits of Moms labour while sitting on the bank of Fish Creek. He wasn't very nice to Mom as you can see on my Utube account at this address.


It's nice to see some of the parent/child interaction shot with the Canon 5D MarkII and my 600mm lens.

Hi Rick
Your young grizzly cub is quite the cute little character. I love his pose as he sits eating his dinner. I love the sharpness and colour. I hope his mom is able to teach him a few manners ; ). TFS Janice

Hi Rick,

He looks a lot more lovable in this picture than in the video. Maybe this was taken after a spanking! He looks adorable munching on his fish. Excellent details of his face and fur - I love his "hand" and "foot." Clarity and composition are wonderful. You must have had a great trip.

Hi Rick!

It's a pleasure to see you back and I'm glad to notice you had a good time up there. It seems that you had some good attractions, at least this young fellow entertained you for a while and is now also our eyes' pleasure. And I appreciate your video on Youtube very much.

Kind regards

Outstanding shot Rick,
Sharp as a tac and showing awesome detail and gorgeous colors. Love the pose with one foot in the air as he chows down on the salmon. The video is outstanding as well. Great work!!
I have never tried video with my camera as of yet, so it was nice seeing just what the camera is capable of doing.

The bear in its natural environment!
Very nicely framed and presented, Rick!

How nice to see you back.
For a Grizzly Bear this is a very cute photo, I think. Great sharpness, details and clear natural colours in this beautiful environment. Taken from an excellent POV in a good composition. Hope to see a lot more from Hyder.
