Getting Down with Brown Bears

I feel that by laying down on the sand and looking up at this Brown Bear helps to emphasis the bears size and power – and it helps to throw the background out of focus.

I gotta say, bears do seem to give you an extra look when they see someone laying on the ground – can be a bit intimidating, especially while looking through a telephoto lens which gives the impression that the bear is much closer to you then it really is!

This was from my Alaska bear photo tour this past June.

  1. And of course, the other nice thing about laying down is you’re that much closer to the hole in the ground you’re frantically digging with your free hand. 🙂

  4. Great picture. Do you find it hard to get the bears eyes light enough to not look like black dots and not blow out the rest of it.

    Thanks Andy.

    It is hard to get that light in the eye of bears – a lot of time I have similar versions of a particular pose with the difference between the best one and the others is a little catch light in the eye. I have plenty that are just black.
