These three grizzly bears crossed my way when I was traveling in Denali National Park in Alaska. Since the early eighties I met several bears in the wilderness where I had no protection. With this picture it was a bit different. I shot it out of a car.
Nikon F401 + Tokina 75-300mm zoom + film (can not remember which one)

I've never seen a grizzly bear in real, alone in the Zoo.
A lovely picture with these three grizzly bears safe far of your car.
Old picture are regular nice picture long in the cupboard, but happy back found.
Quality and sharpness are perfect.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

A lucky moment in your trip, Peter, I heard people would travel long journeies in Alaska with no bear in sight...
Moving along the slop the bears were not aware of the car presence, so you had managed a real wild life in action.
Well devided diagonally the picture space as well.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

Dear Peter, this is a fantastic shot, three grizzly in Alaska, a rare and value contribution on the site, I suppose they don't feel you're there, an excellent example of approach skill..you were very discreet hidden behind a shrub! high defintion and pleasant colors
All the best, have a good sunday evening
