How I got this image was a little bit hairy. I had to position my self under this home made wooden bridge that was the width of Bird creek and had to get in the creek so that this bear could not see me. Here I was about 20 yards down the creek, shivering to death from being in the creek, and knowing all along that I was close enough to the bear that if he seen me and wanted to come after me …. I was a goner. But as it turned out he never seen me and I got some great shots of him.
