Chris, thank you for your incredible photos. Grizzlies are my all time favorite animal and I dream of being able to see some of what you have seen. Incredible photos of an incredible animal. Way to go. Where are these photos taken? I think you should start a project of grizzlies and see where it goes.

WOW just doesn't seem to do it justice. POWERFUL IMPACT! At first, I was so amazed by the capture, composition, details and sharpness that we all look for but then the more you study it, that natural instinct of RUN comes over you as the photographer so skillfully captured all the elements that depict the force, power and the danger of the charge.
