Great shooting, Ian. Bears can be really tough to get a good photo of; they are so blasted black.

Thanks very much Don and Al. The lighting was great for the black, Al....a bright but not too sunny afternoon. An unusual time for a bear to be wandering around too, about 3:45 pm.

Ian, did / do you feel threatened when you encounter these beautiful animals at all.? I know I didn't when I was photographing European brown bears in Finland last year.. It maybe slightly different as these bears see people all the time.

Hi Jason, no I wasn't feeling threatened in the least...I was sitting safely in my truck :) . My camera was resting on a beanbag support in the window and if necessary I could have just rolled up the window. Our bears are generally very, very timid and will run for the hills rather than confront a person.

Thanks Kevin, Moose and John. It was definitely a fun encounter. Even more so in that he had just strolled across a small causeway, maybe 200 yards, where cars and trucks are regularly driving across. Mind you, it's a country road so there are times I can sit there and not see another vehicle for an hour at a time.

Funny John, I was thinking just that. I haven't been out a lot this summer, but wanted to make the effort that day. Glad I did!

Wait till he hits 600#, then he'll just ignore you and keep right on walking.


Feel free to use any photo's that I post for any purpose that I don't find offensive. I'd be honored to find my pics used on that world wide web thingy....

Hope you were ready to back off Ian, he looked a bit too darn interested in a couple of shots, nice ones.

Haha, well he may never reach 600# but he does look to be a hefty young guy. Thanks for commenting.

Ha, thanks Lester. There was no backing off, all I had to do was roll up my window. He was just curious at first. And when I started talking to him, he took right off into the woods.
