Artan's Day:
A Little Bear in a Big World

A spunky little grizzly, Artan, enjoys a long summer's day in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska. He tries clamming, dreams of growing up and catching salmon, enjoys a tasty fish, faces danger, runs from a big bear with his sister, and reunites with Mom.

The photos are real and so is the story, pretty much.

Une Journée avec Artan:
Un Ourson à la Conquête des Grands Espaces

Artan est un petit grizzli courageux. Lors d'une longue journée d'été à Lake Clark en Alaska, il essaie de ramasser des coquillages, rêve de devenir grand et d'attraper des saumons, avale un délicieux poisson, échappe aux dangers, est pourchassé avec sa sœur par un énorme ours et retrouve enfin sa maman.

Les photos sont réelles et cette histoire pourrait l'être aussi.

Thanks for the kind comments.
Wildlife photography is a very demanding field, where you need to study the subjects, their behavior before you even click.
Then, you study their patterns in the field so you can finally capture often unseen behavior.
Fortunately (maybe unfortunately), wildlife are unpredictable and there are no subsititute for time in the field.

How cute ... these pictures make me want to adopt a bear.
They are adorable. How did you ever manage to capture these bears so brilliantly?
