Great shot! I’m scheduled for a Masset visit in a couple weeks. The camera is definitely coming along.

Yves Langlois

Super shot Harold. I mean, not only for the bear, the overall picture is amazing for its deep colours and perfect lighting. The pose of the bear is the good one to show the guy is big. Keep on learning about this creature, but take care.

This was taken in good mid morning light, Yves, so lit the bear very well when it turned my way. Friends from a distance is the best way for these creatures.

Aaron Todd

Beautifully framed, Harold. Such a privilege to see and photograph these beautiful bears close to home.

Harold Fleming

Thank you for your comment, Aaron! Sometimes they stay around for three or four days and then move on. Not this time! They may come around again though.

Clifford Dupuis

What an amazing capture, the mood lighting and environmental scene are all stellar. Well done

Harold Fleming

It was a great pose he took, Clifford. I hoped he would turn my way and patience won out.

Debra Plett

Amazing shot Harold...perfect in every way. He looks like he is prepared to stand his ground. Stay safe out there.

A bear came into the creek bed near my home yesterda, perhaps the same one that was in three days before. As I was taking a few photos when the bear was startled and went into the forest on the run. I heard some cracking of branches when out walked this second bear, larger than the first. It's possibly ten or more years since I've seen more than one bear near my home so I feel fortunate to see the second.
