Yellowstone National Park. It is rare to have an opportunity to see a grizzly bear. It is extremely rare to be able to follow one safely for an hour. And even rarer to be able to do it two days in a row. But this is the opportunity I had, after over 25 years and countless days in the park, I had such opportunities. The bear meandered along the Firehole river, while I followed on the other side. It rarely paid attention to me. I was able get close photos using my long telephoto lens while remaining at a safe distance. This is one of many hundred images.
Technical: Canon 10D camera, 700mm f/5.6 (500 mm f/4 IS lens +1.4x TC), 1/350 sec at ISO 200.
