Photograph of a black bear up to his neck in ferns and bushes with his mouth full of grass. There are ripe salmonberries behind the bear, who is staring intently at the camera. This was the second time I came across this monstrously big bear while hiking in the forest...I can identify him by the nick in his right ear. He's definitely the biggest bear I've ever seen and he wasn't at all afraid of me. I had my two dogs with me at the time but they couldn't see him because the bushes were too high. The first shot I took of him wasn't any good because the camera kept focussing on some grass in front of the bear so I had to step to the side in order to get this shot. Finally my leashed dogs got wind of the bear and made a move towards the bushes, and that's when he finally turned around and disappeared into the forest. This was the last time I saw "Big Ben".
