How Many Cubs?

I’m often asked how many cubs can a grizzly bear have – well the answer is four. A mother grizzly bear, as shown so amply here by the Queen of the Khutzeymateen,  has six teats […]


Yellowstone Traffic Jam

The parks service contractors in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming do a great job in the winter of keeping the north side roads cleared and as a motorist passing through you might think it’s just for […]


Can I Play Mum?

A year after he was weaned, Junior’s mum, Big Momma, returned to the Khutzeymateen with two new cubs – a male and a beautiful blonde female, later named Honey. For Junior his bewilderment at being […]

Black Turnstones

Here’s a bird often seen more on the shores of the outer BC coast than the inner estuaries and inlets. I came across these guys in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest, just a […]


Fall Favourite

Here’s one of my favourite fall in the Great Bear Rainforest shots – one I find myself regularly looking at at this time of year. Artistically, it reminds me of a scenic water colour depicting […]
