Hi Everyone!

I found this page about the 'BLUE BEAR' on:

http://www.surlespasdesours.fr/articles.php?lng=en&pg=1683

Does anyone have anymore information about this beautiful bear?

Thank you!

THE BLUE BEAR OR THE GLACIER BEAR

John Hyde - Picture of Lynn Schooler's book - The blue bear   ours%20bleu.jpg

There is few documentation and pictures about this wonderful bear from the family of the American black bear. I pull out my main informations from the beautiful book of Lynn Schooler : " The blue bear" .

As Lynn Schooler says : " We only find this blue bear or glacier bear in Alaska in the coastal stretch of 800 kilometres between  The Prince William Sound  in the North west and Ketchikan in the South. The only official census ever made, estimate that blue bears are about  hundred  in this area.

This bear " has the colour of a winter sky, it has the same pale blue-grey that the granite blocks that the glaciers leave when they are removing, and this bear leave only in Alaska."

This photograph  was taken by Lynn schooler ( see his portrait in my topic "portraits and interviews ") 
 
Here is what he says in his book : " We can spend our own life to go over the fjords and the fields of ice of Alaska without seeing one blue bear. Writing these lines, I had a look on my photograph (the one you can see above)

It's a second rate photograph - fuzzy and bad composed - and nevertheless it's one of my precious material ownership. This photograph is precious for me , not only because it's one of a blue bear ( and  there is much less blue bear photographs in this world than canary yellow diamond)  but because I had to track down  the blue bear during almost ten years before to take this photograph.
