I suspect there is more telephoto than what you think. Unless this photo was taken in Yellowstone- where bears are more accustomed to people- I doubt Mr. AnthonyS was able to get that close to what appears to be a grizzly. I could be wrong however, maybe posted this from the bears tummy.AlloyNipples said:He looks awfully close, not much telephoto.
Actually, stepping quietly away would be more appropriate. Running tends to ignite a chase the prey reflex in mr/mrs grizzly bear. Awesome picture though. What is the story behind it?joltz said:Very cool shot Anthony.:thumbsup: Hopefully it was taken while hauling azz in the other direction.
