cinnamon bear/black bear siblings

17 posts in this topic

a rare sight indeed! mama bear was on the ground, and these two yearling cubs were up in the tree, not the best of photographs, but was happy nontheless to get what I got!

for some reason this shot seems to be really dark,, I have sold a few of these prints, but they weren't this dark!!

and here the cinnamon one was peeking around the tree, I didn't notice his claws till I got the picture up and on my computer!!

yes agreed, that the first one is a once in a lifetime thing,, I sooooooooo wish I had my new camera and lens for this,, my hubby wouldn't let me out of the truck as the mama bear was at the base of the tree,, odd I thought for these cubs, they were quite large!!

thanks for the comments folks!

Very nice Sue!....I like em both but that second image is my favorite....I have no bear images...never plan on getting that close in the wild or on foot to get any... grin...guess I remember that "bear guy"(Tim Tredwell) that got chewed up on that Alaskan bear documentary...Ole Timmy thought he "knew" wild bears and apparently they thought otherwise......and they say black bears are more unpredictable then browns or grizzlies...maybe I have a bear phobia grin....

thanks steve and johnny, although I could have done without the story,, I, too, have a healthy fear of bears, and respect them,, I sure hope they'll give me some of the same,,

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!
    • You guys need to start an HSO drama club..    
    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
