A large male grizzly propped up to have a look at its curious onlookers. Raincoast Conservation research vessel Achiever was exploring the Great Bear Rainforest this spring to find these beautiful animals. With this big guy around, all the other animals were forced around the peripheries as he was the cock of the walk. Poised on his perch, it felt amazing to line him up for a shot, a tangible photograph to take back as my prize. This is real conservation.
