Bear

“Photography is always the same thing — being at the right place at the right time,” said Lawrence, a wildlife photographer for 50 years whose latest shots can be found at Kootenay Reflections.com.

How did he do it?

It’s almost unbearably cute.

A once-in-a-lifetime shot of a grizzly bear appearing to set up a photo has a B.C. wildlife photographer in the middle of a viral cyberstorm.

East Kootenay-based Jim Lawrence was keeping his distance — as he has for 50 years now — taking long-distance shots of a grizzly hunting for spawning salmon.

“He’s a male, about five years old, and he was fishing on the other bank of the river,” said Lawrence, who won’t reveal where the photo was taken for fear a hunter will take out his new-found friend.

“I set my camera up in a clearing in the brush, hoping to get a clear shot.

SETTING GOALS

With the assignment for BLOGGING 201: SET THREE GOALS the class is to brainstorm and actually write down three things we plan to carry through.  My own plans are gradually developing as I choose various topics and the categories I plan to use for those.

My main goal right now is actually learning to set up a blog so that it has a future. Randomness is not my style, so this site needs to be arranged in such a way that it can be useful to me for a very long time.  Little by little that seems to be happening.

SQUINT! SoCS on Sunday?

Squint!  See if you can tell what this little kid is doing.

Preacher’s brat no doubt.  Showing off just like his father!

Always a day late and a dollar short…!  I may not be late for church today, but I know I am late for the SoCS post.

Is that you?  Is it procrastination or what?  Maybe someone did not inform you in time and so you missed the bus.  You might miss church today too, but you did not miss this photo shoot.

Church.  Keep your mind on your business.

The preacher is saying we need to focus.  I see the lady across the aisle from me is eating chocolate!  What a hypocrite!  She should focus on why she came here!

The man in front of me is sleeping–hmmm!

Oh, did I remember to turn off the oven?  What if…?

When we all stand up to sing, I will sneak out early and probably nobody will notice.

Coyotes: Yipping and Calling as the Night Train Passed

I remember sounds from my childhood home in the Texas Panhandle, noises that made me fearful and cold when I was small, with echoes that I rarely hear anywhere else, the calls of coyotes at night.
