  3. What do you mean you couldn't get closer... (winks and grins). S/He is magnificent, scary and wonderful all at the same time. I do like bears.

  4. WOW!! I think it's close enough, Tammie! great shots, but please be careful.

    I know that you are comfortable, but the Grizzlies are and remain wild animals...

  5. What a guest! He's beautiful, I must admit, but it's easy to say so, comfortably sitting on a chair.:)Maybe it was risky to move near that grizzly, but you are obviously a brave woman! Thank you, Tammie for taking us so deep in the life of the forest, but do take care, please!!:0

  8. I am glad you did not try to get closer. That is one it grizzly in the prime of life. Thank you for being brave and taking these lovely pictures. There's nothing like seeing them in the wild.
    At my in-laws in Vt. we had black bears wandering through the garden.

  17. Just look at how she blends with the nature around her! Please be careful out walking Tammie Lee! I'd miss seeing you here.

  18. Tammie, This Grizzly has wonderful markings. I like the "mohawk!" Be careful if it has found food at the neighbors - it's sure to return.

  19. I sure hope you were not as close as it looks! He had his eye on you, you know!

  20. OH My God!!!! Tammie, this is not like my black bears that will run away when I clap! That one looks like a grizzly??? No must be a brown bear . . . still . . . they attack people too. You wild is so much larger and more dangerous!! Do take care. Great photos!!! I hope you were not too close. Thank you for your kind words. I am sorry not to have visited in awhile . . . overwhelmed and missing you. I will catch up later on. Blessings on you. Carol

  21. Great pictures Tammie.
    I remember getting advice from a couple of park ranger of what to do if confronted by a grizzly.
    One idea was to play dead. I think I'd do what my instincts would tell me...........run !

  25. Wow - what a fabulous experience! It's gorgeous and powerful and a little scary.

  26. Beautiful, Tammie. The shared forest. Perhaps she is approaching because we are encroaching. My hope is that we learn to live together without fear. Conceivably in wonder. Thank you for this glimpse into the wild. Blessings.

  30. Oh wow!!! You certainly gave the illusion of being VERY close Tammie, these are great photos. Such beautiful animals. There's been a few showing up in town here again this year.

    I'm back to blogging as of today. If you stop by, you'll see what I ended up using for my book covers.

  35. TL - I would have been out of there in a flash - I have seen how fast grizzlies can move - and I wouldn't want to be the next meal. B

  36. On one level I'm sorry you didn't get closer. On another level - I wouldn't want to lose you to a grizzly bear anxious about having to share its lunch! Lovely, lovely shots, Tammie.
