Humble Thanks to all of you!
Probably there was another bear behind the woods. I couldn't see or hear anything, they could.

Behind The Lens

Location
The place called Martinselkonen, near Eastern border of Finland.
Time
Usually brown bears walk in dark hours. But in midsommer there is no darkness at all. This was taken early in the evening.
Lighting
When the cubs are young, they prefer the forrest side for cubs to have a safe hide in trees. This was exceptionally shot in more open marsh area, where lights are quite even during the night.
Equipment
Canon 6D, canon 200mm, tripod and hide is needed too.
Inspiration
My first time to see free brown bears and cubs. You can use several days only by watching their doings. Not much extra inspiring needed.
Editing
Basic post with Lightroom, not much cause the lights in sommernight were easy to handle.
In my camera bag
Canon 6D, 7Dmk2, canon 200mm and 300mm, zeiss 35mm, Sigma 15mm.
Feedback
Wait and be patient, the moment will come to you.
