    Bear up a tree

    Same black bear I had to chase away from the campground the night before. A camper woke me up at 7:30 AM saying there was a bear in a tree. It spent 4 miserable hours in the tree before it came down and went back into the woods. Good news is it has not been seen since...

    Just as it was moving into a perfectly sunlit area my CF card blinked FULL. By the time I changed to jpeg all I got was a bear butt shot......

    What you were able to photograph was pretty good. Kind of close even if you did use a telephoto.

    Is that any better than a bare butt shot? - I suppose it depends whose bare butt has been shot!



    I think it is safe to say that (humans aside), we don't live in such a dangerous countryside here in blighty.

    The pictures convey a feeling of 'photogrpaher at risk of personal injury' to me.

    You're keen - if it were me I wouldn't be able to get far enough away from them!

    Can't make out the first; can't you shoot it with a canon. The rest look great.
