    Nice shot of a grizzly at full gallop. Looks like you caught this hungry bear with all 4 feet off the ground!

    I had no idea that these large animals could move that fast. We always see pictures of them lumbering along due to their girth. Great capture film, Sean.

    I can almost see that bear running as the photo really reflects the movement.
