The Saddest Bear

The Saddest Bear • This Yellowstone brown phase black bear appears to me, very very sad.  Now maybe it is because she can't find her brush and her fur si all mussed up. Maybe her cubs have run off? Maybe it is just my stupid anthropomorphism, the attribution of human behaviour to animals. Well I'm glad she couldn't find her brush and I value her sad looking face. I also my anthropomorphistic ways.

The black bears are not a ferocious killer nor are they cute, cuddly teddy bears although they appear to be. Like most wildlife, if you don’t bother it, the bear likely won’t bother you. Black bears are generally shy and secretive and usually fearful of humans. However, in Grand Teton and Yellowstone Parks many are habituated and tolerate us better than bears elsewhere but habituated doesn’t mean tame. Unlike grizzly bears, black bears are seldom aggressive to humans but you still need to give them plenty of room. Black Bears were poorly named.   They were named by the pioneers of the east coast several hundred years ago where all the black bears are black. A couple of centuries later it was discovered the Rocky Mountain genus black bears could be any color, many are brown or cinnamon colored.


Product information

Traditional Fine Art Prints • I have all fine art prints printed at Bay Photo, an internationally known custom color lab.  After printing, Bay Photo ships the print to me for inspection and signing, I then ship them along to you. This takes awhile, be patient.

I spec them on “Moab’s  Lasal Exhibition Luster” photo paper. This paper weighs in at a healthy 300gsm, ideal for gallery and exhibition prints, the new fourth-generation coating ensures the highest possible d-max and color holdout. With product names like Entrada, Colorado, and Lasal its easy to see the source of inspiration for Legion Paper's Moab brand. Created in Moab, UT surrounded by the endless red rock wonders of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, the Colorado River, and the LaSal Mountains, the Moab line of archival, digital imaging papers continues to rely on that inspiration to design premium solutions for digital photographers and artists.

Your paper print product will come pre-mounted on 3/16" Gator Foamboard, a very rigid, durable, and lightweight backing that will not warp, the premium backing for fine art prints. Having messed up prints myself putting them on mountaing board you will appreciate the extra effort and expanese.
