The Bulgarian brown bear population is nowadays divided into 2 subpopulations with the Rilo-Rhodopean with about 300-500 individuals and the central Balkan population with some 100-200 bears. Brown bears (Ursus arctos) often figure into the literature of Europe and north America, in particular that which is written for children. More information on wiki

Dobar tekst o medvedu, sa opisom ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina i kontrast, lepo pokazan medved, lepe boje.
Dobro ulovljen trenutak, lep medved ali opasan.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
A good article about the bear, with a description ...
Good time recording, sharpness and contrast nicely demonstrated the bear, beautiful colors.
Well captured moments, a beautiful but dangerous bear.
Good evening and all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

I like the stance you caught on this mighty animal, we get a great sense of movement in his paw being lifted like this. Beautiful light allows us to see so much detail of this coat, and he has a fierce face. I must wonder why this creature came to be so adored and cuddly in the creation of the teddy bear. I certainly would not cozy up to this one!
Thanks as always

This is a good photo, well exposed and very sharp. The colours are excellent and the bear is well captured as it is moving forward, looking at the spectators. I just don't enjoy to watch wild animals in captivity, at least not in old-fashioned zoos which provide terrible living conditions.

the animal is very well shown here. I liked the light and the position of the animal in the image. I imagine this would be the same kind of bear Portuguese should have some centuries ago.

Nice shot of the healthy looking Bulgarian brown bear. I like its glistening coat. Good timing you catch this majestic animal as it is moving forward. Is this in the wild or in captivity? anyways a fine photo with natural colours and fine clarity. Thanks for sharing.

Good evening Miguel,
A very clear picture of the bear, every hair on its fur shining under the favorable light.
The amazing big animal need to be preserved, and apperently zoo is the best provinding shelter for the specie.

I hope this bear was in zoo, not on the street when you took this picture. The black fur is shining under the sun. It's a nice capture with great sharpness.
