Some more bear and moose from the Tetons

Discussion in 'Birds' started by james thiel, Oct 7, 2005.

  1. Here are a few more shots of these black bear cubs and mother along with a few more moose shots. The cubs were so fun to watch eat the berries and climb the bushes to get to them. I was told by the ranger that the cubs only weighed 30 lbs.

  5. Thanks Gale and Keith. Keith you as so right about the catchlight. I know this and read about it but boy is it hard to get the animals to cooperate and get into the right spot. Yes, this was a real thrill that I will not soon forget. Thanks for looking.

    Excellent shots, Jim! All are very nice, but, like others, I really like the 3rd one.
  8. Wow, you had quite a trip. I haven't always been that lucky when I visited there. Congratulations on some fine shots.

    Love them all James. :smile:
  10. Thanks again all. Gordon is this normal for the area to have so many moose and bear in such a small area? We saw at least 30 moose and maybe another 6 or seven black bears on this trip. I kept thinking the bear were the same but the ranger said there were at least 30 in the area around Moose Junction. Sure helps the odds of getting pictures.

    The first time I saw a black bear was when I saw the bush next to the road move. The bush was so thick that I never saw the bear until it climbed higher up for more berries. Boy what a treat it was to watch.
  11. It seems you have hit this area on a high point for wildlife. Perhaps it because they are getting ready for the winter and stocking up on food. Also, it is late in the season so there are not so many tourists. You have certainly captilized on your good fortune with some excellent images.
  12. Wow! Wow! Wow!

    Jim, I am only catching up with your pics from this trip now, but what an experience it must have been: between all this wildlife, birds and majestic scenery, no wonder one would be tired, especially that shutter finger!! :wink: Outstanding, all around! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:
