As a newbie to this site and PhotoBlogging, I thought I would begin with a single photo that is one of my favorites.
This photo was taken in the Tweedsmuir Provincial Park area in British Columbia, Canada. During the Fall of the year, the Salmon make their runs from the ocean back up the rivers to where they were spawned some years earlier. So this particular river, the Atnarko River, was teeming with thousands of Salmon returning to their spawning areas upriver. The bears come down from their mountain roaming grounds to feast (gorge!) on the plentiful, fat fish. They do this to fatten up for the winter and to sustain them as they prepare for their long winter naps.
The photo opportunities were great as we drifted down the river virtually among the bears as they prowled along the banks and came into the river to pluck the Salmon out of the water and munch on them. Fortunately the bears are so intent on feeding that they ignored us.
I plan on a future PhotoBlog with many more pictures of the bears and the beautiful Canadian scenery.
