Watching grizzly bears close from a boat is amazing by itself but there is no doubt that watching and photographing cute little cubs tops it all. I was lucky enough to see them fairly often on my wildlife photo tours along the British Columbia coast.
Capturing the cubs playing is of course the highlight of every photo day but I also find it very interesting to watch them feeding along the shore at low tide. They are still learning and often fall or roll over while trying to lift a larger boulder in search for little crabs and mussels.
We watched this little guy for almost 30 minutes with its mother in a hidden cove in Knight Inlet. Knight Inlet is famous for grizzly bear watching in Glendale Cove but watching them outside the famous areas, with nobody else around is just very special.

I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS 7D, aperture of f/4.0, exposure time of 1/1000 sec. on ISO 400, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 300mm.
