Snack Time

A fascination for bears of all types, I have photographed and illustrated several. Bears seem strangely at peace as they effortlessly fish with their paws to enjoy a fresh snack of salmon.
This piece was created with my brother Dennis in mind. One of his first jobs was running the tractor at the local garbage dump here in Ucluelet, where the bears roamed freely and were not intimidated by his presence. He could tell many stories of their antics as he went about his business and they went about theirs. He would take me to the rivers during the salmon run where we would hide in the background so we could watch them fish and snack without being disturbed. My brother lost his battle with cancer in 2008 and even today as I watch the bears quietly feed I can feel him standing next to me. Bears are wild animals and should be treated as such with respect and distance. Please do not feed the wild bears as it disturbs their natural feeding patterns.
