Grizzly Bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) female patrolling the shores and uplands of the K'tzim-a-deen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary in the Khutzeymateen Inlet along the west coast north of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada.

 

The inlet is about a 30 minute flight by float plane, north of Prince Rupert. The tour of 6 wildlife photographers (including myself) was 5 days long and run by Ocean Light II Adventures. We stayed at the entrance of the reserve in a 72 ft sail boat (Ocean Light II) and accessed the reserve daily in a 19 ft Zodiac and spent most of the day looking for grizzly bear activity.

Brown bears are considered adults at the age between 3-5 years. They are usually chased away by the mother around age 3. These are young bears that seek comfort with each other after they are no longer welcome by their mother. There is comfort in numbers.

 

Thanks to everyone who takes the time to view, comment, and fave my photo.

Happy and Healthy New Year everyone !

Fijne jaarwisseling allemaal!

 

A black bear checks me out, then soon moved on to enjoy more salad. Impressive how many weeds, bush leaves, roots etc they go thru in an efficient manner.

 

Did you know:

"A black bear has better eyesight and a better sense of hearing compared to humans. Their keenest sense is the sense of smell, which is about seven times greater than a dog's.

 

The average lifespan in the wild is 18 years, though it is quite possible for wild specimens to survive for more than 23 years. The record age of a wild specimen was 39 years, while that in captivity was 44 years." Wiki

 

Enjoy a wonderful weekend!

  

A Grizzly Bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) can regularly be observed on the mud flats when the tide is low because it is the easiest route of travel for them as they roam in search of mates or food along the beaches of the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Reserve on the west coast of British Columbia about 30 minutes flight northwest of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada.

Georgina on the right tries to convince a larger male that the fishing area is hers. She puts up a good front, gets a bite or two in then, inevitably she would get a back of the paw swat. We did notice during most bear disputes they did not use claws to intentionally injure each other.

Grizzly Bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) female grazing on the protein rich sedges, observed during a guided trip to the K'tzim-a-deen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary in the Khutzeymateen Inlet along the west coast north of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada.

 

The inlet is about a 30 minute flight by float plane, north of Prince Rupert. The tour of 6 wildlife photographers (including myself) was 5 days long and run by Ocean Light II Adventures. We stayed at the entrance of the reserve in a 72 ft sail boat (Ocean Light II) and accessed the reserve daily in a 19 ft Zodiac and spent most of the day looking for grizzly bear activity.

 

This trip was during the spring when Grizzly Bears were actively feeding on the sedge grasses, rich in protein, to regain the weight lost during hibernation and is also the breeding season.

This bear and her cub were often on the beach or nearby trail between our campground and the main Brooks Falls area, so we often had to wait to get where we were going, or take long detours through the woods to keep our distance. Here we're 133 meters away, according to my EXIF data, which is well over the 100 yards you're supposed to yield to the bears.

 

Of course there are times when the bears come to you and you can't maintain that distance. On two different occasions we were walking on trail when we heard people shouting "bears on trail!" and "bears coming!" and found pairs of subadults racing towards us. Once we just had time to step off trail a few steps as they galloped past chasing each other at racehorse speed, and pretty much oblivious to us. Another time we were on the path through a swampy area just after the bridge and lookout over Brooks River. They came galloping around the bend and we stepped aside, but could only get a meter or two off the path because of the wetland. This time the bears slowed down and looked at us as they walked by, and we talked gently to them to assure them we were humans and not really interesting. By that time we'd spent enough time around these bears and were used to the drill so that it wasn't too scary, but then again we're not likely to forget it, either.

Bear #2 on our adventure to the Arctic Circle

This shot shows the eggs coming out of the salmon.

This bear took this salmon to the other side of the creek from the platform to eat the good parts as it was not gone for long.

The gulls and other critters then come in to get some of the left overs.

Polar Bear GIOVANNA was born on 28 November 2006 in Fasano, Italy. She moved from Fasano to #TierparkHellabrunn (Munich Zoo) at the age of 14 months. Giovanna is considered a polar bear of exceptional beauty. She loves playing games and constantly invents new ones. This includes chasing any ball after pushing it away and spending time experimenting with different objects to see how far she can let them stick out from a cliff before they eventually fall down.

Offsprings:

*9.12.2013 - Twins NELA (now the Wildlands Adventure Zoo Emmen/NL) and NOBBY (now Yorkshire Wildlife Park in England), Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster/England

*21.11. 2016 QUINTANA (still in #TierparkHellabrunn/Munich)

Father of her three offsprings is YOGHI 29.11.1999 – 13.04.2017

We saw 20+ bears on the trip, but these two siblings were the stars of the show! These two were so entertaining; they rolled around and wrestled with each other for over almost an hour!

For the first time I have been out shooting (with camera) wild bears in the deep forest of Finland near the border of Russia. It was an amazing experience and I encountered many different brown bears. Here are two siblings playfighting together.

A favourite place for Black Bears on a rainy day is to climb a tree and wait out the miserable weather. You will often see them drinking the beading water off their fur.

The tidal flow changes the access along the shoreline so in some cases at high tide the bear are required to swim for short distances to continue their land travels along the shore.

 

The inlet is about a 30 minute flight by float plane, north of Prince Rupert. The tour of 6 wildlife photographers (including myself) was 5 days long and run by Ocean Light II Adventures. We stayed at the entrance of the reserve in a 72 ft sail boat (Ocean Light II) and accessed the reserve daily in a 19 ft Zodiac and spent most of the day looking for grizzly bear activity.

Also notice the steam coming off his back. He's a big old hot blooded teddy bear (that would tear your head off).

Off to visit mom in the hospital.

One of my friends is photographing the Bear from behind and I was in front. He was lucky one day to photograph one that had climbed a ladder and was on the roof of an RV.

We went to Yellowstone to find some bears and it worked! Had a short but wonderful trip. Found this adorable little guy along with his 2 siblings and mother several times. Spent hours watching them. A true treat.
