Out for a Swim

A Grizzly Bear just “Out for a Swim” in the Great Bear Rainforest.  I always love photographing swimming bears, especially in the Great Bear Rainforest, because it is common that we are able to capture this dark green water, like in this image, that really makes the bears pop.

 

It is interesting when a bear is so comfortable that they swim right by our zodiac, without a care in the world.  We were in our spot, and this bear walked down the beach closer to us and then swam in front of us, instead of swimming by further up the river.
