Clam Tasting Close-up

Here is a very close-up shot of an adult female coastal brown bear (grizzly) eating a clam at Lake Clark Alaska. The bears make their way out to the mudflats at low tide when they smell the clams. The tides are intense as they rise/fall 17 ft so when it starts coming in you had better get to higher ground.

1/800 sec @ F11, ISO 1600, evaluative metering, +1 exposure compensation, uncropped @ 500mm from Skimmer ground pod.

    Guess they don’t mind sand grit or😝 miss the melted butter, but good choice! Love it! Great photo! Here in New England, steamed and fried clams are in demand ! That grizzly would start many conversations while waiting in the long lines at the local clam shacks!

  2. Thank you very much Diane. Your versions sound much better than mud on the half shell.
