When I first met this older female bear in Gunner inlet, she ran off! I wondered why?She came back a few minutes later & thats when I saw a recent wound above her left eye.It probably smarts like heck! She settled down eating all the sweet Spring grass.Notice how the ears are flipped back.It means she’s keeping a eye on me.
A male bear was out looking for some afternoon delight but instead ended up munching away on some grass! Notice how the females ears are flipped backwards & the mouth is open.First signs of distress.It’s not mating season,so I knew he wasn’t going to be getting anything………. maybe a swipe in the face but she seemed way to polite for that.
She crossed a creek & he stayed on the other side.Whenever she grabbed a mouthful of grass,she’d always look over to make sure he was where she can see him….far away!
As you already are aware,each person has a unique personality.We are like snow flakes,no two are alike.
This principal applies to all animals as well. I have not met this female bear before.She was constantly staring at me.Whenever I encounter this behavior I know the bear is fearful of me.So I try not to move while they are watching me. But sometimes no matter what I do,they are just too skittish & run off.Thats what she did a few seconds after I took this shot. Some bears are just very hard to get to know & are best left alone.
“Scar” was eating away calmly when he got spooked & took off like a bat out of HELL! He almost skipped across the water like a thrown stone! Than after a few seconds,he was chewing away calmly again! I think he heard something in the forest behind him? The wind was up a bit & the forest does make sounds.
I collaborated with Lori Marchell on three eagle pictures.All three shots are of my feathered friend “Romeo”.Lori has brought a unique blend of realism to her canvas!
I’m sure my feathered friend would be very impressed with her efforts!
Great work Lori!
