Photographer's Note

The third shot from my Grizzly Bear Encounter...
(two previous can be seen here and here)

For such a large animal (weighing anywhere between 350-1500 pounds/159-680 kilos) most would be quite surprised to know that they're not solely meat eaters. The Grizzly is omnivorous. It eats berries, roots, fungi, grasses, fish, carrion, small mammals and insects. It is very good at catching fish and it often uses its long claws to dig insects out of rotting logs and small mammals out of their burrows. Some grizzly bears in the Canadian Rockies hunt larger animals like moose, elk and goats.

As mentioned in my previous posts, the characteristic large hump on the Grizzlies back is muscle and is used to power it's large and long claws in digging.

I hope you like the shot,
- Dan
