Welcome to The Shadow of The Bear Step inside and BEARWARE as I take you on a brief tour of Kodiak, Alaska, 'The Emerald Isle'.To begin our tour, I'd like to introduce you to a few of the locals. Feel free to refer to them by name if you spot one while visiting, though I do advise you to BEARWARE and remember, they ALWAYS have the right of way!
All the photos you will be viewing in this website were taken from a distance with a telephoto lens. It is important to remember that bears are wild animals and should NEVER be aproached. This rule applies to maintain your safety and the safety of the bears.
This is Bruno, he is the first bear I encountered on Kodiak. Bruno is extremely playful, he loves to swim and has put on quite a show for me over the years. I now spend several months of the year in "The Shadow of The Bear" where I am able to observe these magnificant animals in their natural habitat.
Finally, I'd like you to meet Trails. He is a beautiful chocolate brown bear. Trails was named for 'trailing' along behind us as we fish along a particular creek. After several years together, I look forward to seeing him.
