All images (above) shot with 300 f2.8
The ones showing the full body were taken with a 1.7x TC attached. When the bear decided to come within just a few metres, I had to scramble to remove the TC.
Exciting few minutes.

The location (photographed using 20mm f2.8).......

These are great shots Gilles but they seem a bit flat in color. This could be my uncalibrated monitor here at work so ignore if I'm talking nonsense :smile:

These are EXCELLENT SHOTS, but I agree.
Do you think maybe saturating in PP would help that?

I am not sure, but other than that, they are excellent shots!

And you wilderness photographers are brave.
I don't want to be within TWO MILES of a grizzly that isn't behind an enclosure of sorts.
Beautiful creatures, but dangerous.
:biggrin:

Wow Gilles, awesome!
I have shot some berry eating bears in Alberta - BLACK bears that is, I wouldn't get that close to a Grizzly :eek:

Wow - a few metres?! You have steady nerves, my friend. Nice captures!

Very nice series. All of your shots are great but I like the "looking around" shot the most.
