Default A few bears

Sorry I haven't been around much lately, but been really busy.

Here are a few I got this past week.

Wow, those are awesome! So um, exactly how far away were you? I'm a little nervous just imagining taking that last pic, feel like looking over both shoulders real quick to make sure they are all in front of me

No worries Bil, I was using a 400mm and was at a safe distance. The bears knew we were there, but were not concerned about us at all. I'm always aware of where the wildlife is and if at any time, I feel I might disturb them in any way at all, I back away and leave them alone, No shot is worth harming an animal.

Good shots.

Most importantly, good attitude!

Agree totally. We live in the densest population of Black Bear in Ontario, Canada, and couldn't agree more here.
