See - I told ya' others would like these. Still a very nice job on these, and Tim's advice was spot on. I do like the rainy shots, but the shots with the cubs are too cute ~ Ron


As usual, you're right, Ron . Thanks again!

Excellent images of the bears. Did you photograph those in the Alligator Wildlife Reserve? I see signs warning of the bears when I travel hwy 64 to OBX.

Hi Jim, thanks for the comments, and yes, these were all taken in the Alligator River NWR.

Great images. I've photographed a large number of bears, both black and grizzlies, and I will always take conditions like you experienced here rather than harsh, direct sunlight. Black bears in harsh light are impossible to process; these however provide wonderful mood, something that enhances images rather than distracts. Great work.
Tim


Thanks, Tim, and you're certainly right about the ideal kind of light making the best images possible. I'd like to come back to this location for an early morning shoot and possibly a late evening as well to take advantage of some "golden hour" light .

Even in the rain those youngsters are mighty cute, good job.

Thanks, Rob. Watching the cubs scamper up a tree and play around with each other was definitely the highlight of the day!

Great stuff. I think Tim's pp comments were right on and improve them. Eric's too, lovely family photos. Well done for hanging in there despite the rain. Your images are a fine reward.

Phil


Thanks a lot, Phil! I have a feeling complaining about poor weather doesn't get one too far in the UK,

I do like the reworks Mitesh I think they still retain the rainy day feel while looking natural. Really well done my friend

Great shots, Mitesh. My only suggestion would be to shoot in the rain more often.

With a sow & cubs, be sure to watch the hair on her neck doesn't rise. Be ready to run if it does.

Thanks, Tony. Good advice for sure... I was very careful to keep distance and make my presence known.

Thanks, Mike. You should stop by- it's the largest population of black bears on the east coast. You also get bonus points for photographing bobcats, and it's the only place to see red wolves in the wild.
