Really beautiful shot!!
Thanks, it is always thrilling to be so close to these majestic animals
How close were you? I hope you had a telephoto lens. Great shot!
We were pretty close. Maybe about 10 m? This river is famous for salmon and ...bears! They are so content fishing that often fishermen and bears are standing side by side. I've got a great picture of my friend fishing with the bears.
Is this other picture available somewhere for us to see?
not now but if you wanted I could post it.
I think it would be appreciated
hope that was a telephoto!
Don't usually vote on the animal shots, but this one's just awesome.
Thanks, I know there is a fine line about animals photos (this one is kind of over the line but...)
Bear eating Sushi.
Rather the fish than me!!
this is so great. we never stopped there now i see that we should have.
It's an incredible spot to be in the fall.
Except for the BBC nature series, only once have I seen such a scene! The otter (Slovak) was much smaller though and didn't sport that cunning, brazen look. All the features of the animal in your picture, including a snub nose, make me suspect it might be a trained Russian spying critter heading towards the US.
haha The otter (real one) that lives on the same lake I do, hisses at me. Now that one I am convinced is a spy.
I'd like to take him in my arms and give him a big bear's hug!! :-)
Me too except for the fangs and claws!!:)
