A Moment to Pause

Close ups of wildlife often get the most attention but personally I find more appeal to images that show the animal's habitat, especially when done right. This year I've tried to photograph scenes that depict the animal as part of an ecosystem rather than just a close up that could be taken anywhere. As I went back through some older images for a project I was working on, I came across this photo of two young grizzlies as they napped on the shore of a lake in Glacier National Park. High winds coming off the mountains created some large waves which really added a dramatic twist to an otherwise peaceful moment. After a while, a photographer had to get closer to the two bears and, fortunately for him, the bears took off in the opposite direction and vanished out of sight into the dense underbrush.
