Hi, Rick! How have you been?
Hope your Wharton outing went off well.
Going by this sneak shot of an itchy bear, you surely must have had whale of a time.
The picture records a moment in a bear's life not seen frequently. It is a wonderful capture.
Your camera settings, however, bargained for a little OE here and there.
Thanks and regards.

I see you really had a nice trip. Your meeting with black beer is fantastic. I hope 600 mm lens was so suitable for such meeting :). You managed to catch a very impressive moment. Scene is very natural and attractive and quality of the shot despite the special light condition is great. My compliments and TFS.

Nice to see you back. I hope you had a great time. Good photo to start with. Good sharp focus on the bear. Beautiful natural colours and an excellent composition.

this is real. How far can one go to the bear?
this is enough to show its being and its surrounding. Such a real wilderness.
It is quite humurous also to see the pose of the bear.
Nice sharpness and good contrast indeed.

For a little while I couldn't figure out what the hairy animal was, not the best shot of the bear, but certainly a well depicted image showing the way of life for bear and its motive. When I have an itch, I grab anyone or anything.
Must be fantastic just to sit there and observe.

This is a great image of a bear giving himself a good scratch. I love the way his white spot is exposed on his chest. A nice action shot. This would have also made for a good video subject. I hope you're not working to hard these days.

Nice to see from time to time an image from you. This one is interesting, but also funny! Allways, the mos jucy buds are higher up in the trees!
Thanks for sharing this with us!
All the best
hehehe dear Rick,
This photo is great, I really love it! I have seen giraffes contorting themselves to get a good scratch, Impalas rubbing their bottom against thorn trees etc etc
But a bear is really a good catch! Thank you for posting it to TrekNature!! (Where you in the car, when you took this photo?)
I see you photographed the animal in the morning at 07:13 having a ''wash'', I wonder if they do this every morning?
Your notes are great, did you mean the female gives also birth when half asleep?!?
I hope to see more photos from your trip
Take care and have a nice week,
