[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When we were in Hyder during our trip in September we ran across this fellow, one of the biggest Black Bears I have ever seen and we have seen a few through the years. This big boy was walking on some logs that were washed down the Salmon River just yards from some homes in Hyder. I like the fact that in this image you can even see the bears paws. Have a great Sunday everyone.
I almost forgot this was taken in a down pour of rain thus the wet coat and streaks that go with it.

Hi Rick,
Big boy indeed:)I liked details,sharpness,POV and pose of bear a lot.Have a great week!Thanks for sharing..

Hi Rick
This is one healthy looking boy. I like the angle you captured him in showing off his massive body and paws. He is nicely framed in by the greenery in the background and the log below him. Well done my friend.

Hi Rick.
What a splendid bear. You have pictured it at a very attractive pose. All details are perfect including nice BG. My best wishes.

Bonjour Rick,
Très belle publication sous une bonne profondeur de champ et dans une lumière bien maitrisée et avec une très belle opposition sur l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Rick,
What an impressive shot of this huge fellow indeed. He looks to be in great shape with his beautiful fur coat and massive body. Excellent detail, exposure and composition.
I have seen plenty in Pennsylvania over the years and this is definitely one of the biggest by far. TFS.
