Wonderful capture, very sharp details, lovely shot.

Hi Paul,

This is a very impressive photo. I wonder how long you had to sit there waiting for this amazing pose. What luck that he decided to sit down right there is a perfect setting. That isn't a really long range lens so you were pretty close... kind of scary I would imagine! Nice work!

Evelynn : )

great capture, TFS Ori

Hello Paul
A beautiful scene and landscape. Well done!

You are so brave Paul to have captured this healthy looking brown bear. Lovely composition with him sitting on the rocks waiting perhaps for dinner to stroll by. He is a real brute, I can even see how long his claws are. Excellent portrait.
