Standing 25 feet from a bear is an exhilarating and memorable experience but it can only be done with patience, love and respect.
You must be patient and willing to pass up a photo if an animal is disturbed by you. Wildlife must be respected and you must feel privileged that animals are willing to let you photograph them.
Chief Dan George Quote:
“If you talk to the animals they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them you will not know them, and what you do not know you will fear. What one fears one destroys, and if you destroy the animals, you will destroy yourself.”
