How did you get such a close perspective?

These bears were busy with clamming and not very interested in humans as long as we were not between them and the sow. I shot this at FL400mm and was crouched down so I could be almost level with the bear. This one separated from the others and I turned away from the other photographers so I could focus only on this one and his clamming activity.

I love the dangerous innocence and focus. Thanks for the background information.

You are most welcome....if you get a chance (and have never been there or want to go again) the Lake Clark area of Alaska is a real treat for photographing wildlife and especially bears.
