Coastal Brown Bear - Katmai Peninsula, Alaska
D700, 500mm+1.4x, ISO 800, f/7.1, 1/800s

Oh how I wish I could have gone on a bear trip that was offered to me this year - I'll just have to process some bear images from previous years that I hadn't processed before...

An outstanding image. The comp, layering and BG are fantastic. As good an image of these guys as I have ever seen.

We have a saying over here when describing  a large, well proportioned animal, we say it has a leg at each corner.  :)   This magnificent bear definitely qualifies for that distinction!  What a handsome subject and superb photo!

Thanks for the virtual bear trip- a beautiful substitute for the real thing (which I would never experience anyway). Love the setting and expression.
