This is a collection of Bear photos this photography of Grizzly Bears, Brown Bears, Polar Bears, and Black Bears all have been photographed in the wild. Photographing bears can be one of the most demanding undertakings a wildlife photographer can peruse. Not only is there an element of danger but bears spent most of their waking time feeding on the ground so their eyes are often not in a good view for captivating images. Still great images of bears will be a valued addition to a portfolio.
The Grizzly Bear pictures were photographed in Denali National Park, Lake Clark National Park, Katmai National Park or Yellowstone National Park, and Grand Teton National Park. Yellowstone National Park is one of the easiest and most accessible locations in the world to see Grizzly and Black bears. It is not uncommon to have bears walking right down the road past cars lining the roads. At one time coastal bears were considered Brown Bears, and interior bears, Grizzly Bears. It is now believed they are the same species and the two terms often get used interchangeably. The coastal Brown Bear is larger, because of the plentiful food sources such as salmon. Mountain Bears often spend their time grazing on plants and roots, when prey such as Elk and Bison Calves are not available. The lack of the rick probing found in the spewing Salmon means mountain don't tend to grow as large.
The Black Bear photos are from Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
Polar Bear photos are from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska and Churchill, Canada.
