when I saw this bear, I wasn't sure how long it might stick around, so I got out the 500 without tri-pod and climbed down a small hill. Then it wandered over to the tree, stood up and posed... Wish I would have at least taken the monopod.

Great shot even without a tripod. Looks like he is checking his height on a growth chart!

Thanks, but obout the only keeper due to camera shake, (low light) had several other cool poses, but may not be able to salvage any of them :(

Any shot of a bear getting his groove on is a good one;)


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I love the pose!

by the way, definitely keep the ones with camera shake until the new version of photoshop comes out. it has a motion blur removal tool that is supposed to be very useful.

True, I don't see many either in so Cal, that's why I enjoy getting out whenever I can, I think they enjoy a good back scratch like anyone else, he did this on two different trees

Thanks, I have a program from Topaz, that has worked fairly well too, thanks for the heads up

A small crop from left side mostly, and thank you

Yes, he was one of the bigger of the black bears of that trip, did come across some grizzlies too, but at much greater distances, and thanks
