Wow incredible capture. How close were you? I would need at least a 600mm to feel safe and even that would have to have a 1.4X on it! LOL

I was using a 200 to 400 mm zoom at about about 40 yards. I kept something between us at all times :-)

Thanks all, These were taken right at the exit of Cades Cove in a typical "Bear Jam" there so it was just me , the bears and about 50 others and if she had gotten angry there would have been others that she would have gotten to first. I consider myself a pretty good outdoors-man and always try to have an exit plan when close to wildlife, others seem to think these are cute puppies and get way to close. It could have made for some spectacular photos though had she decided to get upset, of course they would have been blurry as it is hard to execute the escape plan and keep things in focus when I am diving through a car window!!

Bianchi, miss typed I have a 100 -400 L (Fat fingers)
