Congratulations to Gene Putney for winning the recent Photographic Motivation Assignment with the image Grizzly Bear Cub.
“In mid-May 2017, there was an overnight snowstorm that blanketed Yellowstone National Park with snow,” explains Putney. “I started out just before sunrise, and it was very cold and overcast as I headed to the Lamar Valley area. It didn’t take long to come across a grizzly sow and cub foraging for food. At first, the cub stayed close to its mother but got adventurous and moved further away to search for its own food.”
Nikon D500, Nikkor AF-S 200-400mm f/4G IF-ED, Induro Stealth GTT204 Tripod/BHM2s Ballhead. Exposure: 1/1600 sec., f/6.3, ISO 1600.
