This was shot with a rented Canon 100-400L IS, on my 7D. I'm very much an amature in wildlife photography. This bear was one of 11 we saw in two days and very accomodating....

Which do you like the best?

Thanks for the comments. I was experimenting with different crops so that's good to know. I've got a little head room to fix/change #1. :)

I was probabaly about 50-60 feet, zoomed all the way out to 400mm on a crop body. Close enough for him to close the gap in a few seconds..:shock:

Keep in mind you only have to out run the slowest photographer there.

Nice series.

#2

50- 60 feet is too close unless you were in the bus or on an elevated platform like Katmai.

When shooting grizzly, try and get shots of their paws with claws if you can. It always adds something to the pic to see the size of them

#2 and # 3 for me also. When I was there in 2005 saw only one bear, so you are very fortunate. KUDOS to you.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.
