Grand Teton National Park, Week Two


Our second week in the park has been full of bears.  Mainly grizzly bear #610 and her two cubs of the year.  They have been hanging out within sight of the road almost every day, providing many photo opportunities.  The first image is of #610 emerging from the willows...


#610 spends a lot of time in the willows hunting for food...

 
 while the cubs play nearby...




One morning #610 crossed the road only a few feet in front of us which allowd me to get a portrait of her...



When a bear appears near a road the result is often a "bear jam" as everyone tries for a photo or a look...

 
There are other bears around such as this three year old sub adult grizzly...
 
 
This black bear was photographed near Signal Mountain Lodge where our daughter works...
 
 
On a recent evening I took this photo of #610 as the sun was setting. I like the effect of the sunlight rimming the edge of her fur...
 
 
I have many more photos to post but I must say that the internet service in north west Wyoming is the worst I have ever experienced.  This may be my last post until we return home.
 
Thanks for visiting, be well, and come back....in a month or two.
