On the eve on my next visit to BC's Great Bear Rainforest, I wrote a piece looking back on the highlight of last year's trip: the battle between two grizzly bears that occurred right in front of our boat. Though it wasn't a fight to the death, it was pretty physical, with a lot of grabbing, pawing and biting (and a tiny bit of blood), and it lasted a few hours.

I share more photos and tell the story behind this encounter in my blog.

Great shots and narrative. I don't want to sound like a shill for Canon, but the fact that you were sable to take such clear shots from a boat bobbing in a strong current speaks wonders to the image stabilization system of their lenses.
