A couple of pics of a grizzly bear taken from behind glass, I like them but please feel free to add your comments good or bad.

Hi there and welcome! :G

Considering these images were shot from behind glass, they're pretty good.

It's nice to see you filled the frame with your subject and total focus is on the bear.

Good job!

I just paid a visit to the Toronto Zoo too! I know you took more pictures then that, I think I spent over 200 shots and didn't even make it through the whole zoo. I hate how the Candian section is tucked waayyyy in the back.


One of these things just doesn't belong....

Not only is the Canadian section way in the back it's also down the hill! I see the bear is still soaking in the pond. I'm surprised that it's not completely waterlogged.

Next time you're in the Canadian section check out the cougar. It always walks the same path so you can get in position and shoot it when it goes by like this: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...mp;forum_id=90

hi

did try to get pics of cougar but he was tucked up away from the sun.

You are right about the canadian section and that hill....phew the walk back up was tough especially as my visit was on the hottest day of the year but it was worth it for the pics of the bear.

Good shots!
Try going to the left side of the enclosure and shooting through the chain link fence, sometimes more intersting views from there and fewer people bumping around the windows.

BTW. the Canadian section is up for being rebuilt over the next year or two. Should be moving to a new location, so the "killer hill" won't be part of the Canadian experience too much longer :G

Peter.
