The "+++" : subject, pose, POV, DOF, colors, exposure, useful note...
The "-" : sharpness a bit soft on the bear...
Congratulations and TFS.

It's always a pleasure to see one of these impressive creatures and i like the fact that he has learned traffic awareness too! Nice natural colours and good details, as always.

wonderful shot, the young bear does pose very nicely and seems almost a bit shy. You captured wonderful details in the fur and the eyes sparkle nicely.
The composition is lovely, shows of the bear so well in this great natural enviroment.

An excellent shot on this Black Bear. The pose in its surrounding natural environment is perfect. Exposure looks spot on. The colors and detail are really good.

good one that shows lots of detail.You were fairly close to this bear and I commend you for your bravery as I don't think I would care to be that near to Canada's most dangerous bear but then again-maybe.The included note is informative and entertaining as well.Some of the areas look a little overexposed but a fine picture it is.Tfs.

If I'm not mistaken, this must be one of your best bear's pictures. What a wonderful capture and you seemed to have been quite close. Details and POV, composition and exposure are superb. That must have been a very impressive encounter. What a beautiful animal. Thanks!

This is a great capture Rick. The image looks a little washed out on my monitor???? So we can look forward to more bear shots in the coming active months.
We are off for a week to wildlife refuges of central Oregon. I'll catch up with your posts when I get back.

A 'typical' Adanac image (not self portrait of course):-).
Most interesting shot. Amazing wildlife. However the bear doesn't seem to be in a wild mood. Needs a lot of warmth and milk if you ask me. What a capture...

Wow, that is quite a close-up of a real live bear, Rick,
Excellent sharpness of details.
I like the way he is looking sideways: he looks kind of pensive.
A beautiful specimen.
TFS and wishing you a happy and healthy 2008, my friend!
