Pilgrim Creek Area in B&W

This cloudy morning brought to you by …. a hiatus in grizzly activity!  This exact location was packed with wildlife photogs the entire week we were in the Grand Tetons (first full week of June).  399, a local grizzly famous across the planet for surviving 24+ winters in the Yellowstone basin and for bearing multiple sets of triplets and twins, made these flats her showcase for Spring ’17.  She has two new twin cubs, and they emerged from the adjacent woods 2-3 times per day to play and nurse.  The road, which is difficult to see in this image, was the epitome of “bear jams” at least twice per day.  On this particular morning, she had been known to migrate south a couple of miles.  We still had bear spray and watchful eyes at the ready!
