That last one of the brown bear is good. A grumpy look indeed. :)

I love the first one! I love how the Branch Frames the bear. My eye sees the branch and follows to the bear. Well done!

Are you high in a tree stand when taking these awesome pictures? The brown bear coming at you looks pretty scary! That's my favorite too.

Hey you need to meet our good friend her Mr Ed Shaperio I think you will find you two have a great deal in common and between the two of you we might have to start a Photographic Electronic Engineering Forum

Jeff, very nice images. If you want to photograph more bears up close, you might look at some of the trips to places in Alaska like Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. I was there last year photographing grizzlies and it was a fantastic experience. For some reason, they ignore people and simply do their thing. It was great to watch them chomping up the grass in the meadows behind the beach and then digging for clams when the tide went out. At times we were less than 100 yards from them and they simply ignored us.

Sounds fantastic WG, but I think I'd want to be wearing Hermes winged shoes... just in case! :D
