At the state of Maine sportsman’s show in Augusta, I was astonished to see the outstanding photos of Maine black bears by Dawn Brown of New Sharon. You’ve really got to check these out which you can do on her website HTTPS://BEARTODREAM.NET.
Dawn cares for bears at her home and is a real enthusiast for them. She is also a bear behavioral researcher. I have honestly never seen black bear photos as amazing as these. You can purchase these photos on Dawn’s website.
Here’s her explanation of what she does: “I have been caring for and observing Maine bears for near 2 decades. It is a dream come true, and oh how the bears continue to teach me throughout this amazing journey. I have been so blessed to see their instinctive development, and key behavioral patterns that I have witnessed and documented over the years: single cubs, sibling units, and adopted siblings, and yearlings. Over the years I have indeed gained a better understanding of them. It is an honor to know – that so few out there – will ever be able to see what I have – real time = I am truly more grateful than words will ever say.”
You have to be impressed with Dawn’s enthusiasm for black bears. In her own words, “I love photographing the very bears that I have cared for and observed over the years, and look forward to the continued journey, and though I am just getting going with selling/marketing my photographs, I do understand it takes time to get established.”
I encourage you to check out Dawn’s photos sometime soon, and help her get established!
