I met this bear on the way back from Lake Moraine in Banff National Park.

On scary faces at the hades gates, Gerrald!
Quite possible this is the lovliest wild animal picture
I've ever seen in my life.
And what the heck is he smiling about?
That he skipped morning shower?
That he's walking on wrong side of the highway, and what THEY going to do about it?
Two thumbs up.

Nice picture!!! I looks as the bear doesn't care about all that you are behind him with a car! I like especially the right foot which is visible from down. I suppose I have never seen that before and it looks very strange! As if it were made of plastic!:-)

I love his wet fur and in a way he looks rather pleased ... maybe he had a good meal ...

Very good capture... funny too!
I think he is smiling... maybe he can smell food?
Pleasantly composed image with good DOF giving great details in the animal... Well done, and congrats!

not very often that we can see such a picture, it's a nice shot.
And a good composition too ^^

This was a close encounter! And you managed to have your hands not shaking!!! Excellent photo, I like the bear's position on the shot, and the details such as wet fur and his foot.

I love that paw! Perfectly framed shot as well. If this was the same day you took the Moraine Lake photos you have posted, it really must have been a GREAT DAY! I'm Jealous!

This is a great shot. I love the timing and the action that his uplifted foot conveys. Makes you feel like he's even walking in the photo. Great subject, POV, and depth of field. Thanks for sharing.
