My favorite bears to photograph were the Bird Creek Bears. I suppose it was because I spent all summer with them several years ago. I would spend all day with them, photographing their every move, then spend the night in my truck, listening to them fishing in Bird Creek, with the ability to be able to see them all right, but not enough light for photographs (being in Alaska during the summer). It really makes me sad though because the bears that I use to photograph are all gone now, because some of the people that fish Bird Creek, felt threatened by the bears fishing in the same creek, so they shot and killed them.
