Here are two images of a grizzly bear that I captured from the deck of my very bouncy sailboat. Hand held. She was about a 1/4 mile away, which was the way I wanted it to be.  lol

Very nice!

Grizzlies terrify me. The further away the better. :)

I didn't realize there were Blonde Grizzlies :)

It's a dye job - this bear is originally from LA :D :lol:

Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy.

Nice shot, Ed.  Do you know if she's from LA?  ;)

 

I would prefer to keep as much distance between bears and me as possible.  That works for grizzlies, but bear sightings are common in Metro Vancouver.  Our townhouse complex seems to be right in the middle of black bear habitat, so we get at least one bear sighting per week.  :)

Haha!  That is not an unusual colour for a Grizzly.  We have lots of Black bears here on the Island as well.

In TN Black bears are all over the eastern part of the state that includes most of the state and national parks.  In west TN we do have some black bears but not as many though they are migrating this way, and they are rather small compared to a grizzly that said I prefer to give them a wide berth just the same.

Well, if I had an extra $75K lying around, this would be my bear lens.

 

But if that's too rich for your blood, for a mere $32K you can shoot with this one.

 

'Course that doesn't include the block of concrete you have to bolt the mount to so you don't get camera shake. :o
