Taking the Shot
Dennis and I were in my old Suburban, Big Red, and had been watching a large male as a winter storm developed. We knew that there were two other bears lurking nearby but lost sight of them as the storm intensity increased and visibility dropped.
I was not able to get the camera angle that I wanted from the window or the roof hatch of the Suburban, so Dennis and I got out so I could shoot from the ground. At first, I slid underneath the Suburban, to shield me from the growing storm and also protect me from the two other bears that were somewhere behind us. However, I was so low to the ground that the blowing snow totally obscured the bear...I couldn't see anything in the camera viewfinder. So, I crawled out and ended up taking the shot from a crouching position, with the bear totally vanishing as the wind gusted and coming into view again as it died down. And while I was shooting, one of the other two bears rushed us from behind, and only turned and retreated when Dennis chambered a round in his shotgun. So it ended up being a pretty exciting photo shoot.
I consider this to be my best shot of a polar bear....but maybe my perception is stretched a little because of the incredible adventure Dennis and I went through to get it.
