[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was my forth time in Yellowstone National Park. We drove slowly along north shore of Yellowstone Lake in hope to see wildlife...

Grizzly Bear walked close to the road... I never met grizzly in Yellowstone before.

He moved very fast and I needed to run along the road some hundreds meters before I could see his face and make this shot...

The grizzly belongs to the most widely distributed species of bear in the world — Ursus arctos, the brown bear.

Across North America grizzly bear occurs in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Alaska and Canada. Most North American grizzlies belong to the subspecies Ursus arctos horribilis.

Grizzly eats fish, carrion, large mammals, mice, squirrels, marmots, insects, pine nuts, berries, fungi, fruits and roots.

Bonne photo nature avec de bonne couleurs réelles. La mise au poin est parfaite sur le visage de l' ours tres bon détali . Merci pour l'envoi.

Very nice picture Nikolay, sharp and with a nice wild backgound. But I think your black bear is a young grizzly, they are found in the park and apart from its size, the grizzly has this hump on top of the shoulders making quite distinguishable from other bears. However, I'm not an expert in bears Nikolay and I could be wrong, either way, it's a great shost.

The bear looks nice, but they are dangerous, even if they prefer to eat berries and salmon instead of human beings. Wonderful picture!

You did What?? Great shot and glad you didn't end up as dinner.

Excellent focus, good light, I think I would crop the background down to the top of the lower tree treunk
