Out of the Darkness

Banff National Park, Alberta

“I chose this image to honour Earth Day because The Boss symbolizes the resilience of nature. Despite all the challenges and threats to his natural environment, this magnificent grizzly emerged from hibernation once again – ‘out of the darkness’ – determined to continue his species, a symbol of hope for wildlife and wilderness habitat.” Jason Leo Bantle

In the realm of the grizzly, we are the intruders. This most recent encounter with The Boss was completely random in the early light of this morning. It was chilly as I visited Banff National Park, and I was more than astonished to meet up with The Boss.  Emerging from the shadows, alongside the stream, he lumbered toward my lens, and we made, yet again, another connection. I was so excited to be in the presence of a local legend in one of those random yet perfect moments with just the right setting, at just the right time.
