Nice Scott! I love the way both bears have their eyes on you in No.3.

I think the bears are checking out the new lens Scott.
"Is that the new 200-400?"
"Naw - it's too soon to see one in the field."
"Sure does look like the new lens to me."

A very nice set. I'd be happy with any one of these ~ Ron

gpchase: Not the first, but perhaps the 5th - or tie for 3. It was hard to wait but it was good to hear the positive IQ ratings as I waited. Maybe the first grizzlies with the 200-400?? Glad you like the pictures. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


douter: They were cautious when I was shooting at 200mm. Me too. Glad you like 3. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


surfnron: Or - who would be crazy enough to shoot with such a short lens. Glad you like the pictures. It was a great day. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

The last 2 are my picks Scott. Seeing one stand up and look at me might make me shaky

canadajim: Glad you like the family of bears. The lens is working well. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


James McQueen: Glad you like the images. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


morris: Glad you like the lst 2. It made me shakey at short mm settings. But they moved toward me over about 5 minutes and were used to me, so I felt they were safe. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


tfoltz: The young bears were quite curious about what I was up to. The mom pretended that I was not there. Glad you like 3. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


oldrattler: Glad you are impressed. The lens works well. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

It looks like a very low light day but it looks like the new gear is quite capable and has quick changing versatility on reach or retraction. This should be a great lens for your type of shooting Scott!

Bears are awesome!

Yesterday I got my new 200-400.

So, after work, of course I rushed out to Kananaskis Country and found some Swainson's Hawks, Bighhorn, Moose, Coyote and Grizzly. It was an impressive bunch that came out to pose for the new lens.

I now have about 4000 pictures that I need to sort through. Life is tough.

Here are some of my better ones but expect to see more.

Comments and feedback are appreciated. Scott

1-4 of 4


Wow! thx for posting! One can really see the personality/attitude of those bears!

Great images. I got a 200-400, also, but nothing like bears to photograph here. Maybe my dog in the back yard

Scott,
its getting mighty difficult to comment on your posts and say anything different. So I wont.
All show excellent technical control, compositions, and an astonishing intimacy with the wildlife.
You have long mastered this genre.. (and your landscapes aint bad either)
Keep 'em coming.
Scott
