Day 222 - I'm ready for my closeup.

Didn't get any worthwhile images today, so spent time trying to work out the external hard drive and transfer images. Edited this one from the Great Bear Lodge, Canada - taken last October (before I started the 365). This grizzly cub was 2 years old - all grizzlies in the rainforest remain living in the wild, no human contact. He walked past us about 3 feet distance (mum was of course right next to him). The bears here are under threat due to hunting still being permitted. Shame. Hopefully the cub survives!
superb shot

Great shot. I understand the bursar causing a concern this year as the berries are so prolific. many trails nd camping grounds closed

What!? This is an amazing photograph, but that is deadly close.

@kandkids we were sitting on a platform at the edge of the river. The guides were there - and they know the Bears. The mother was further away, and the cub was nosing around at the river edge for salmon eggs. Sounds mad now, but at the time it was an experience of a lifetime.

Great shot and it's well worth revisiting. I'm guilty of that, also. Take heaps but aren't impressed with the results, then start looking through the back-catalogue. In the end, it's our project, though:)
