i'm glad you didn't blur the surrounding vegetation here as it's great to see this fine looking Bear in her natural surroundings. The OOF leaves at the bottom of the frame help create a sense of looking through the foliage from a hidden position too.
The eye contact suggest that she was very aware of your presence, which must have very exciting, if not a little unnnerving. Great detail in her healthy looking coat and good exposure under the trees. I like your notes too, although alas Bears haven't been seen my part of the world for quite some time!
Funny. What a tree hugger she is.
May be she's sad the tree has been cut?
Nice capture of the bear and cub in the woods.
Good thing you mentioned the cub. I hadn't seen it peeking around mom's rear. So cute. Good focus, comp, POV, Dof.
I like the BG.

Hello Eduard, impressive and wonderfull shot of this brouwn bear wonderfull vivid colors and sharpness, perfect focus and lovely composition very well framed,
thanks for shared
Excellent capture of a rare specie in the wild.
Funny pic as well as it indeed give the impression that she is sorry about her best tree now shopped down.
The unblurred background is not disturbing as it is. I'm glad you didn't blur it. It is hard to do it in a un-noticable manner. I see too many posting in which the post processing work can be guessed.

Funny picture. Wonderful bear!
O adevarata imagine de wildlife.Culorile sunt excelente iar personajul(personajele-in spatele mamei vad si un pui un pic nedumeit)super faine.Cel mai mult imi place cum ai reusit sa surprinzi privirea ursoaicei care parca vrea sa-ti spuna ceva.
Ce sa mai zic, sunt un pic invidios ca vara asta cand am fost in Ro nu am reusit nici o poza buna cu ursuleti, dar in toamna o sa fiu plecat o sapt in Nord, unde sper sa gasesc ceva ursi negri.
Felicitari si multumesc.

This is a nice capture of a bear in a semi natural setting (human sawn tree is unfortunate... but aren't they just about everywhere?) The sharpness and rich color gives this impact.... along with that eye contact. She's watching you but doesn't look too perturbed.

These two photos of bear are the best photos of this animal (taken in natural environment) that I ever seen on treknature. Beautiful colors, great light and sharpnes and he is rely looking at us :-)
Excellent pics, almost impeccable English comments, maybe a little bit moreabout the place itself would help market it to "locals" in a pleasant manner. Intr-o simpla fraza, inafara de titlu unde trebuie mentionat pentru a fi postat nu ai zis un cuvant despre Romania sau locul unde ai facut poza. Sper ca nu te supara comentariul meu. Nu zic ca trebuie sa faci lauda sau prozelitism, dar noi toti zicem ceva si despre loc in sine. Inca odata imi cer iertare daca e cu suparare.

Mais il est né pour être modèle de photographe cet ours! ;-)
Cette pose lascive, bien des mannequins tentent de l'avoir..
Trêve de plaisanterie, j'aime beaucoup ce cliché naturel mais dommage que tu n'aies pas pu éviter ce premier plan gênant.je me doute qu'il était difficile de faire autrement et un cadrage plus serré ne serait pas bienvenu..
Pas toujours facile de faire des clichés idéaux dans la nature.

Superba fotografie, extraordinar subiect!! Sunt mandra ca Romania inca mai are "wildlife", si sper ca aceste magnifice vietati sa nu dispara niciodata din tara noastra!
Numai bine, Oana
I've just discovered your three posts of this Brown Bear, all brilliant! I'm surprised though that you could get as close as 15 metres when she had young cubs. Was she used to people? She's obviously been tagged and is being kept under observation. Anyway I love your captures, they're very sharp and colours are beautiful. I like the natural settings too.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

I like the way you captured this Brown Bear spread out over the logs, with a glimpse of her cub behind her: it is as if she is using the logs to make a boundary. May I complement uo on your composition: it is perfect!
The sharpness and other technical qualities are good too, all of which make this an excellent image.
Well done and thanks for sharing,
Best wishes, Ivan
What a nice and sweet picture! This title is much appropriated! I love this eye contact a lot; I would have been so impressed having living this moment! This animal is a real beauty. Your notes are very interesting. I must say that I knew all those advices being a camper since I'm a child. It might be for that reason that I never saw a wild bear :(
This year, a section of the Mont-Tremblant National park had some problem with wolves as people used to feed the deer and the wolves, as their predators followed them to some campsites. They became too friendly with the campers. One park keeper told us an anecdote about a wolf sitting at night near a fire camp where people were cooking meat... They never noticed him until the park keeper suddenly clapped its hands to scare him away... He told me that because people in this area are feeding the deer, the wolves were acting almost like dogs which is a serious problem. It was on the newspapers in the entire province here. They even talked about capturing those too friendly wolves to kill them and investigated what might be wrong about them; a real pity (I don’t think that it happened though). Even if the rules are very clear when you enter this park, some people just don't seem to understand the importance of not feeding wild animals... Again, thanks for this great picture and very interesting notes.
what a wonderful shot of this brown bear. the compositionis excellent, the sharpness, DOF and colours are spot on and the notes are excellent.
Vazand ca n-ai mai apucat sa postezi nici o imagine de ceva vreme, m-am gandit sa-ti urez "Sarbatori Fericite" prin una dintre cele puse anterior.
Dupa cum cred ca ma mai spus, imi place mult intreaga ta serie de poze cu ursii nostri dragi :)
Asta de aici chiar e simpatica iar momentul si figura pe care ai reusit sa o prinzi aici sunt chiar nepretuite. Privirea aceea din ochi e nemaipomenita iar contactul vizual dintre tine is ea adauga mult la valoarea fotografiei.
Imi place de asemenea ca se intrevede si puiutul (cred) acolo in spatele ei...asa mai fricos el, dar curiozitatea se dovedeste totusi prea mare :))
Oricum, se pare ca multa lumea ti-a spus multe lucruri frumoase despre imagine asa ca singurul lucru pe care i-l mai pot face eu e sa te felicit pentru ea si, in aceasta perioada a anului sa-ti urez un Craciun cat mai cald si fericit alaturi de cei dragi si un An Nou cat mai bun, plin de realizari, succese si vise implinite :)
Sarbatori fericite si TFS
PS: Sper ca nu stai de geaba si mai iesi si tu pentru cateva poze...macar cateva peisaje de munte ;) (haha)
