BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner

Our bear guide told our group of photographers and bear viewers to never walk directly towards the bears. Always walk alongside them in a non-threatening manner so that they can detect and monitor our presence. Used a 200-400mm zoom lens with a 1.4x teleconverter. Taken in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska.

When I was at Yellowstone, some tourists were walking right towards the bear, thinking it was Yogi Bear..then a park ranger came along and shooed the bear away! :-) Nice shot again, Deb. You got some great ones of the bears!
