Hello, Run into this Bear while on a short hike to look for small mamals (marmots, etc ...). The photos have been cropped to about 65% of the originals. It is always a good idea to keep some distance. I was able to keep up with this bear for a few 100 metres before in went back in the woods. Got many shots of its rear end but did mamage a few good ones showing its good side :biggrin: View attachment 230694 I was armed with a D200, 300 f2.8, 1.7x tc and monopod :biggrin: A few more images can be seen here: http://www.pbase.com/gkorent/gallery/recent_images Thank you for looking. Regards. PS: never got what I was looking for as I kind of got diverted. Then it was loo late.
