Some dances with wolves while others run with bears ... I know it sounds crazy, but sometimes you don't have time to think. It was the first time I saw a wild unmarked bear, it was dusk and it suddenly ran in front of the car along a forest road. I panic braked, grabbed the camera, rushed out of the car and ran after the bear into the woods.
It was magical. I ran like a madman and found to my delight that I actually approached. It was then that the bear stopped and looked at me. I don't know if it was my imagination or if the evening light played tricks on me, but I got a very clear message.
- Read my lips: what the hell are you doing? Have you really thought this through? And I must admit that I had not ... The bear went on the crust of snow while I sank to the groin… my chances to run away from him if he would like to take a taste of me, would be non-existent so I wished him a really nice blueberry season and returned to the car, happy to be a bewildering experience richer.
