So nice to see a photo of a bear that is not blurry for a change. Great job and thanks for sharing.
Thank you! This was taken from no more than 100 feet. I'll be posting a few more in the next couple days.
Ok, I look forward to more pics.
I run into them every so often but at least the black bears are afraid of people.
Hope you were using a powerful zoom! This would be a little too close for my comfort :-)
Well actually this shot was taken from about 75 feet. :-)
Cool story and photo. The friend of mine who took this photo borrowed my camera and then walked closer and closer as I begged her to stop. She's a backcountry ranger in Olympic National Park. She told me to relax because the black bears in the park are a smaller breed and that there has never been an attack in the history of the park. Facts set aside, it was a little close for comfort.
