Photo of Grizzly Bear Male

photos of grizzly bearsHere’s a couple more photos of my grizzly bear buddy “Charlie”.

grizzly bear male photoYou can really see how tall he is when he stoops down to bite on sedge grass.  Although certainly not the largest male grizzly bear I’ve seen, he was one of the largest on the Katmai Coast during one  of our camping trips.  I always bolted to sit near him if I saw “Hopper”, the much smaller bear who had bluff charged us.  One afternoon Charlie was taking a nap, surrounded by eight or nine grazing female bears.  When he woke up, and started to walk, every single bear scattered and ran away quickly.  In this photo, he is actually grazing near several females who were comfortable in his presence.
