Fall Time Twin

We’ve seen a lot of this bear and his sibling over the last few years and a couple of weeks back I posted ‘How to Spend Summer‘ – a late spring/summer shot of the two […]


How To Spend Summer…

…Grizzly bear cub style! Here we see two old favourite cubs, brother and sister just hanging out and chilling in the summer sun on a bed of seaweed to help keep cool. These guys as […]


A Khutzeymateen Update

This is Big Momma – matriarch of the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary here on the BC coast, photographed in the fall of 2018. Many of us have wondered what it has been like in the […]

Grizzly Family Photo

So, following on from the feature ‘Lunch on the Mud’ here’s the same family posing for photos soon after finishing their meal. Mum of course is more concerned about checking her route to continue along […]


Another Khutz Postcard

As always over the winter, I’ve been catching up on some of the back log of images that I have waiting in line to be dealt with. Here’s one I did recently from 2016 and […]
