A whole new meaning to smell the flowers. Actually I was having a cocktail last night and looked up noticed the proximity of these flowers to the picture of this grizzly that hangs over my bar. Couldn't resist the post. Swipe to see the way too close photograph of this huge creature that occurred by accident when I was looking for wildlife and bears but not at this distance. Was standing not far from my truck in a gully and he stepped up over the edge looking straight at me. Reached for the bear spray on my belt but realized it would probably be of little use even if I could get it off in time. So instead just picked up the camera took a couple of pictures and slowly backed away. The bear showed very little interest and no aggressive behavior whatever but judging from the scarring on his snout he had been in a few altercations in the past. Made it to the truck and this became my grizzly picture probably of my lifetime. Just for the record no picture is worth approaching any of these animals to this distance and a minimum hundred yards applies to virtually all of the larger beasts in Yellowstone. This was a complete surprise and accident. #grizzly
