Testing software recently got me digging through the files. I'm pretty sure that this is the same bear from the thread that I posted a couple of days ago. She was a beauty but had funny looking ears and one that went awry every once in a while. But not in this sequence.

D4, AF-S 80-400
1/800s f8 ISO1000

1) Beautiful bear

3) I think I was set up where she wanted to sit down and enjoy her meal.

Nice series! I like 1 and 3 the best. Jeff
Thanks for commenting, Jeff. Yeah broadside shots like no.2 just don't have that much pizazz do they?
Nice captures. THe fur seems a bit oversharpened to me - sort of too hard instead of furrish. Does that make sense?
Thanks for the comments, Allan. I hadn't deleted the PSD files yet so I went back to make sure. Other than the LR "standard" export sharpening the only one with any sharpening applied is no.3. I did selectively apply what ON1 calls a "sunshine" filter which warms and stretches the histogram. Other than that she's just got a wet, bristly coat. One downside of shooting on a stream is that you rarely get any shots of dry bears.
Beautiful bear indeed! Beautiful bear on my bucket list...Bucket is getting full and I need to do something about it! Nikon Cafe Alaska meet?
I'm up for it :)
#1 for me
Superb work Dan
Thanks, Randy.
