Welcome. Great post. I've seen lots of bear photos on the Forum including my own but these are right up there with the best. Can't decide if #1 or #4 is my fave but both are top drawer and should grace a wall somewhere in your residence. Don

Hi Kristen, thank you for your kind words and great to hear from you. Going to Haines is definitely on my to-do list too. I was gonna go last year but schedule didn't allow. I want to go this thanksgiving but maybe its too late for the bald eagle season. How about you? For the bear trip: Chas, my tour leader, is the best photographer I've ever known. His knowledge on bears, photography skill, and image processing techniques are second to none. From my experience of three places I went: For Lake Clark, you can get really close to the bear. Best place to photograph sow and cubs, mating, clamming, but salmon hunting depends on tides. In Denali, bears are usually far away, park has strict rule for distance. Hiking may be needed to see them close. In Katmai, its the best for salmon slamming. Some people do katmai coast tour where they live in a boat for a few days and land on different beach, but I have never been to one. For bears or any other wildlife, it depends a lot on luck though. For example, Chas had two back to back workshops in Katmai this year. In the first one, they see bears everywhere. In the second one which I joined, the bears disappeared for a while (its nature after all) and it took us quite some time to finally find them. But once we found them, the opportunity was superb, with bear pouncing for salmon everywhere, one of the best even from his experience. If you have any questions please feel free to write here or PM me.

AWESOME shots Tin!! I am planning out my trip to Katmai next August. I just got a new job and can finally afford to go the right way! I am so excited but so overwhelmed with how many choices of places to go to. Do you recommend the tour guide you mentioned above? Is Katmai the best place to see Grizzly? I would LOVE to go to the Chilkat River in November when all the Bald Eagles congregate there. Seems to be a one week trip there alone, as the tours are arranged that way. Keep the pics coming!!

Hi Bruce, thanks for you kind words. How was the stay in Brooks Camp? We went there for two days but we flew in everyday instead of staying. You got much more shooting time than us!

Tin---The low level shots really worked well--all very nice. I especially liked the two leaping shots (first and last photos in the series).
