Eyes of the Grizzly | Artist Proof

“I was fortunate to capture this stunning image I call "Eyes of the Grizzly", the portrait of a young grizzly bear who is nicknamed ‘Blondie’, due to the light color of her guard hairs. She was just 3 years old then, still learning to survive on her own.

Just last weekend, my search to again find and photograph ‘Blondie’ brought me back to the Pilgrim Creek area where she calls home. I was fortunate to find her, now 10 years old, looking healthy and teaching her two young cubs the lessons of survival that she had learned from her mother so many years ago.”

Eyes of the Grizzly has been a collector favorite since its debut. The Collector Edition of 950 is now sold out and only a limited number of Artist Proof and Legacy Reserve editions remain. To add this image to your collection, contact Customer Support or a gallery to check for availability.
