Wow.. amazing photos. That is probably the biggest Black bear I have ever seen. Are you sure its a black bear? In the second photo you can see the bears hump, which grizzly bears have. I have known Grizzly bears that are anywhere from black to blue to red to white. The first and last photos are my favourite. I honestly can't add anything to improve the pictures.. they are just that amazing.

Great stuff Jeff, he's a big 'un and a good one to keep at arm's reach. Maybe 2 arms' reach! We have a big one in the area but I haven't seen him yet this year, still hoping.

Thank you, Im absolutely sure he is a Black Bear, If I had a wild Grizzly that you could shoot at 200mm and live Ian would be camping on my door step.

Thanks Ian, he was very easy going but had an attitude ...like he did everything on his own terms.

OMG that bear is huge. Is he attracted to your bird feeders? I sure hope I do not experience that.
