We were very fortunate to find this Griz up on Dunraven. Later that night, it snowed, and Dunraven Pass was closed for the remainder of our Yellowstone trip.
She was feeding on Pinion Pine nuts, and had her head down 99% of the time. It was a waiting game, peering thru the viewfinder for long periods of time, just waiting for her to look up for a moment so that we could get some eye contact in the photos. Most of the times she glanced up were so brief that I missed the opportunity. Finally I got a little bit of a feel for the timing, and was able to capture her during a few brief instances when her head was up.
There was quite a crowd gathered around her, so quite a few folks were able to observe and photograph her at close range.
