Does he/she have a radio collar on? on April 18, 2007

Yes it does. I noticed it after I downloaded it to my computer. But it is wild.

A wild bear - wow! on May 22, 2007

I was down at the river taking pictures of salmon, when this bear showed up. I quickly put on my telephoto lens, snapped off a few pics from behind a tree, then quiety got out of there. The bear did get a fish. There are a couple of more pics at my website:

There are so many salmon that I guess you weren't in danger? What an adrenaline rush. Cheers from Australia

What a great shot! I had a very similar experience with the same bear, the same week. I was also at the river's edge taking photos of the red sockeye salmon. That bear nearly scared me to death! Such an amazing experience to have. Thanks for sharing the photo. on December 18, 2008

Thanks Bruce. It was truly a thrill. I wish I hadn't left the river bank too soon as he got a fish. But then again, at least I got this photo. Steve
