[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We saw this small black bear right alongside the road during our road trip in Summer 04 through the Canadian Rockies. It was the first bear either of us had seen outside of a zoo. Too bad we couldn't get a shot without any bushes in the way. In any case, we were thrilled to see him.

He's too cute! Grrrr....you should have gotten out of the car and clipped those bushes before taking his photo!
Actually they don't detract too much from the composition, He is a bit blurry, but I like how the grass is brighter just right behind him.

This could have been a great shot, but the bear is out focus...

This is a good composition and you exposed it well. The bear is a bit blurry, but I dont think it is due to the focus. If you look at the bush in front, and the grass at the back, it is all in better "focus" than the bear. If you look at the bear's front paw, the blurring there is due to movement. At 1/60 shutter speed, the shutter speed was to slow for the movement and thus caused the blurry effect on the BBBBB (Big, Bit Blurry Black Bear)

Well done and thanks for posting
