I still feel a rush of joy when I look at this photo. I'm not sure that'd be the typical person's reaction when eye to eye with a grizzly bear, but capturing a decent photo of a predatory animal is infinitely more difficult than, say, an elk. It also helps knowing that I was tucked safely behind my car holding a long lens when I shot this. You either have to know where to look, or you have to be at the right place at the right time, and actively charging into the trees after a bear just out of hibernation is not at the top of my to do list.
.
Yellowstone has a lot of wildlife jams, and by that I mean once someone spots something, a crowd forms and cars slow to a crawl. We were driving through the park when we happened upon one of these jams. Drew let me out of the car and went on ahead to park while I wandered over to the gathering crowd to see what was going on.
.
Oh," I thought, looking out into the forest. "That's a grizzly bear. That's TWO grizzly bears."
.
I looked up the road in the direction the bears were moving and spotted Drew headed back down towards me and the grizzlies.
.
“NOPE. GO BACK," I said to him, explaining the situation and leaving the crowd behind. I think I went googly eyed for a second with one eye to the trees and one eye on the car. Once we made it back to our parking spot, we noticed there was a clearing between us and the roaming grizzlies (a mother and nearly mature cub). I figured if we waited around a few more minutes, we might be able to catch a glimpse of them. Sure enough, they came out of the trees and mama bear posed magnificently for me. They foraged around a bit before crossing the road. We watched them amble up the hill for another 15 minutes or so before they disappeared over the hillside, and Drew and I were left to stare stupidly at each other with huge grins on our faces. Ah, Yellowstone. 🐻

Here’s a photo of a pretty badass waterfall from my trip up north this last weekend. My brother and I hiked up the Mist Trail in Yosemite Valley. We were freezing our butts off and soaking wet at 35 degrees but it was all worth it when we reached this point. The waterfall mist filled the air around us, sun shining above us and a huge saturated rainbow filled the sky behind us. .

Look out @canonusa I’ve been using @sonyalpha gear all year and they have figured their stuff out.
This black bear cub of the year was peaking around a tree and the @sony #a7riii and #100to400mm nailed it. It has been fun hiking and shooting with smaller and lighter gear. Gear that nails the focus while shooting #10fps at #42mp, and did I mention the small light zoom lens is crazy sharp.

Happy 21st Birthday @liz_mason Thank you for sharing it with me in the most beautiful place. #yosemite #tunnelview #elcapitan #halfdome #ynp #yosemitenationalpark #becauseofthewAythatitis

Well good morning to you, shaggy. I was going to go over and give him a good brushing, but the park ranger said we have to stay 100m away. I always follow the rules.
