My wife and I were paddling our kayaks up an ever narrowing river in a wilderness area when there was a rustling sound on one of the many game trails that penetrate the thick woods. To our surprise, this black bear entered the river and proceeded to cross right in front of us. He didn't take notice of us until he was half way across, made eye contact and simply quickened his pace a little. What a total thrill and we felt so fortunate to share a little time with him

1) Just after entry






2) Almost half way






3) Love that 100-400 flexibility!






4) Hello






5) Close enough, thanks!






6) Flanking speed







Thanks for looking!

Generally a bear does not swim in the woods, now, any body of water will do!
Nice set especially those where it has its eyes on you.

The perspective is outstanding - almost feels like you're in the water right beside it

We do enjoy shooting from the kayaks, low perspective and you see so many things you wouldn't get to see from a trail.

He definitely was surprised, just plunked straight into the river without a moment of hesitation, so he didn't notice we were there. His departure was made with more haste!
