Brown bears that is. There are a couple more on my Flickr if anyone is interested.

Fantastic series! These are all great but the last one is really special. 2, 4 and 5 would be my other picks. Great work!

very nicely done! I have to ask though, do you get nervous being that close to the bears? i'm guessing they were at about 40 or 50 yards away?


Cheers,
Joe

Not really. I was in a hide/blind, and brown bears will ignore people as long as they don't feel threatened. The closest they came to the hide on this trip was maybe 10 yards, but I have had them brush against the hide on previous trips (and in places like Alaska, you don't even need a hide!).

Damn, 10 yards , I think I would soil myself. I don't really don't know much about bears. Where I am the only thing you need worry about are stray dogs and hitting a deer with the car. :)

I really like 4 and 6... but that isn't saying I don't like the others. I love seeing healthy animals in the wild.

Thanks for taking the time to share them with us.

Great pictures! I love pictures with reflections anyway so those would be my favorites.
