p.1 #1 · Sloth Bear at Wilpattu NP...


Hi, everyone.

During my recent visit to Wilpattu National Park I was fortunate to sight a Sri Lankan Sloth Bear. Sri Lankan Sloth Bear (Melursus ursinus inornatus) is not an easy find in Sri Lankan National Parks. On our second day inside the Wilpattu NP our group met this bear around 8am. The lighting was not enough to get the details out considering the dark black nature of the subject. To lower the noise and to preserve the details, I shot these captures handheld at ISO 400 with 1/60 sec shutter speed with my non-IS 400mm prime. Hope you enjoy.

Great find Jude. Not bad at all for a handheld shot. The bear is looking straight at you in #3.

Nice set! Are the sloth bears slow moving like sloths?

Hi Eric, I was very exited when I saw him. Pretty happy to capture few photos and watch him pass by.

Thanks Tim. What else to do other than handhold when your two buddies in the jeep mount their big guns on tripods inside the jeep and covering the view. Glad I was able to capture few usable shots.

First time I see one, Jude. You did very good considering the SS.
4 and 5 are my favorites, but I enjoyed the whole set.
Thanks for sharing

A terrific sighting and you did extremely well to get shots in those lighting conditions.

For me no.4 is the best, very nice pose and sharp too - great job!

Paul.
