That's actually what I meant.. even with a .45, you would not be safe at that range.. you would not stop him.
Though I knew he was kidding with the "wife" comment, I thought he was serious when he said he was safe. I couldn't imagine why he felt safe, that close, outside of his car. I did not really suspect he had a .45, but..

I had blown an earlier opportunity and feared I wouldn't get a second chance.

Don't you love it when you get a second chance and you nail it? Very satisfying.

Yep, we saw 5 or 6 black bears and two grizzlies in Alberta. I was always driving so the last to get a chance. With the first grizz, I had to change lenses and all the other settings different than landscape photography. Well, I overlooked the AV and shot the grizzly at f11, getting 1/20 sec shutter speed. By the time I realized what was happening, he was in the bushes and gone.

Thanks, Marcy. In the 4th one, the bear looks just like my kitten when I scold her.

Thanks, Mike. Berries were plentiful, so the bears were looking pretty healthy.

Are the conservation officers in Kananaskis still ticketing anyone who stops to take photos of animals on the side of the highway, or did you manage to elude them?

No ticket, and a ranger truck passed while we were there. The bear stood up to see what caused such a roar and dust cloud, thereby giving us a better pose.
