Glad you got to 'walk away' - somehow I remember being told to back slowly away (hope I never have to).

Wow Mark! That the quite an encounter. I'm glad the bears were content with being the subject of your photos.

Oh, what a cool wildlife capture. My hand would have been shaking. I came upon a skunk once and I was out of there.
Looks like a book cover to me. Great work Mark!

I would have probably not had the guts to stay and take the shot!! Well done - Mama would have been pretty nasty to deal with.

Well done, my friend - and yes you were very smart to walk away. How far away is 3000/1 focal length?
