Took these on one of our bi-annual trips to Yellowstone. I rented a 400mm lens :)

Yeow.. That's a portrait, and that bear looks none too happy!
Great shot Maureen, but I don't think 400mm is long enough for me!
I would want more of a running start ;)

are you wielding the 2.8 or the 5.6?

Beautiful shot Maureen. I think using a 400mm was a very wise move. The second shot is a ripper.


Got stuff ;)

Nice shots, Maureen. Were these in the wild, or over at the West Yellowstone sanctuary?


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

Pretty sure this one was near Madison Junction. Also shot another cinnamon colored bear near Tower Junction on the same trip (we have been a couple of times in the past 2 years) but I can't remember for sure which one.;)

Very nice pics, Maureen. You know that you will probably end up purchasing the 400mm lens, so that you can take more pics.

Great shots, Maureen. I especially like #2.


All I want is just a little more than I'll ever have.

I ended up purchasing the 300 f/4 & thinking about asking Santa for the newest canon 2x teleconverter. I needed a beanbag or tripod to manage that 400mm lens & it was a bit too much for me.

That bear has got the evil eye thing happening Maureen! Evil enough that I reckon you were probably too close for comfort! Thise things are massive.

Excellent capture & he's not the type of critter I'd like to be close to. You deserve a bravery award.

He was too busy to care about us being close. :)
