A mother Grizzly on a morning stroll with her two cubs ambles through a small meadow in Yellowstone National Park. Believe me. You don’t want to alarm this several hundred pound sow in any way. She’s already on protective high alert as her cubs stay very close to her. Even though I’m sure they were well aware of our presence, they did exactly what we wanted them to do. They ignored us and continued foraging before they disappeared into the denser forest.
With our long lenses we stay a pretty far distance away and are nowhere as near to the animals as this image suggests. Always, the idea is to let wild animals go about their natural routines without our presence influencing their behavior. Job done!

Wow you are brave! That is a lovely shot.
I am too scared of bears. I wouldn’t venture around them, even if I was looking at them with a telescope. 😉
