I Can’t Bear it


If only that fisherman would catch a fish, I could help him lose it – maybe steal it away from him.

I can smell the fish jumping.

But he’s not a great fisherman or he’d have one by now.

Oh, I give up. I might as well go catch my own someplace where I can have peace and quiet.

Just thought I’d show my face though – “fly the flag” a bit – so he wouldn’t think about coming ashore to fish. They do that sometimes.

Gotta claim my territory.

I couldn’t bear it if he took my fish right from under my nose.

  1. Great photos! I don’t know, it looks pretty peaceful already. Derek and I have been watching a series on the Discovery Channel called Serengeti. Your bear here wouldn’t like the watering holes there…thousands of animals are congregated trying to get some water. The photography is incredible.

  2. We saw some brown and black bears up in Denali NP. Not fishing, though, but either just ambling along or browsing berries.

  3. Love the bear!!! My accountant is fishing in Alaska right now and caught a 60 pound halibut so he’s very excited.

    • I was surprised that the pictures came out even as well as they did because it’s a fairly old and basic camera and he’s not interested in the picture taking – just the fishing. But I nagged him a lot to get a picture of the bear next time he saw him, and he did.

  7. Not really. About 200 kms from here. Just as well it wasn’t nearby because we have had them here several times over the years. I prefer them to stay way up in the wilds.


  8. That seems like a mighty big bear! My hands would be so shaky the camera would fall in the water. Are they aggressive, or just fishing for ….fish? Fun POV. xo

  9. No, they are not generally aggressive, but you would be a fool to trust them not to be in a bad mood at any particular time. Usually they wander off pretty quickly when they see a person.


  10. Greate pics! The Captain did a very good job.
