Grizzly encounter by Hagge Grizzly encounter by Hagge
100 Theme Challenge ~ #65 "Horror"

Yes, we have these in my state! I love 'em! But depending on where you live, they can be a nuisance or a veritable nightmare! And you never want to encounter an enraged grizzly or brown bear! It is a horror to have one charge you, bluffing or not.

*whew*...this isn't the only one I'm working on, but it's the only one I've had time to finish...:)

Fantastic. Frightening, even. Your "action portraits" of animals are truly magnificent.

Thanks for sharing! I pointed to all my facebook friends too :)
I actually encountered this myself. The grizzly was behind only 3 tiny wires that he thought were electric. He charged me several times. I was shooting with my zoom so couldn't see him and took down the camera and he was in my face with nostrils flared and blew snot all over me. He did this 6 times or so and I never got used to it. He would stomp both feet to stop and his feet were right beside mine. He was 800 lbs.
I would love to have a wide angle and do it again. Click just as he gets to me. He doesn't like when someone gets right to the fence.

Did I forget to leave a link? [link] Here's his claws!
We have a grizzly living on the ski hill in our town in the Canadian Rockies. This guy lost his Mom to a poacher and now lives on a 22 acre refuge. Biggest of its kind. He's lived here about 7 years and he's over 800 lbs in the fall :)

Wow! I wish I'd be able to get close enough to get a shot of a bear. The only time I've done so is when I was on my bike and nearly ran into them. Twice. Cool shot! Lucky you! :)

Grizzly bears are terrifying, their awesome power is great enough to snap a human like a twig.This is really cool, I like the water and the fur.

I absolutely love the way you did the water in this. :nod: It looks great! Any tips?

Thank you. :)
My suggestion to you would be to find a good water picture, and endeavor to emulate it. Water is so affected by its surroundings, there is no pat way to draw it, esp. if you're going for realism.

*nods* Thank you! :hug: That certainly makes sense, I need to take into consideration when I do a piece, that the surroundings really place an important factor. :nod: Thank you so much for your advice!

And you're very welcome! :tighthug:
