I was recently up in Maine filming black bears for an episode of “Expedition Wild” for National Geographic. I should say “trying” to film black bears. Turns out that bears are hard to find in the dense, northern woods. The magnum Fujinon lens that Grizzly Creek Films has didn’t turn out to be a lot of help in stuff that dark and thick. We did however hop from lake to lake in a float plane filming moose and loons and bullfrogs and leeches and lots of other good stuff. Should be a fun show. We also followed host Casey Anderson up to the top of Mount Katahdin. Needless to say, there weren’t any bears up there either. But the view was worth the hike and made us feel like we were in the mountains of Montana again. Here are some production stills from the trip.
