The brown bear (Ursus arctos) is a large bear distributed across much of northern Eurasia and North America. Adult bears generally weigh between 100 and 635 kg (220 and 1,400 lb). Its largest subspecies, the Kodiak bear, rivals the polar bear as the largest member of the bear family and as the largest land-based predator. There are several recognized subspecies within the brown bear species. In North America, two types of the subspecies Ursus arctos horribilis are generally recognized—the coastal brown bear and the inland grizzly bear; these two types broadly define the range of sizes of all brown bear subspecies.

This is a majestic animal and you captured it from a good angle with some nice environment surrounding it. Although I would have liked to take a picture like this I would not be very amused at the idea of actually meeting a bear in the wilderness. There are lots of them in Sweden, fortunately not in the Stockholm area. We have a few wolves near the city, but they are much shyer and less likely to attack people.

It's a zoo pic. I presume, Eleu - otherwise not likely he is an Arizone native.
Nice snapshot of the impressive animal, has a thick fur and heavy - yet a very swift in action.
Fine taken picture while on he moves.

Buna seara Eleu, hope you're ok, nice picture of that brown bear (Ursus arctos), very precise and correct photo comment about it, I like the pine cones on the ground of the forest, natural colors and good sharpness, all the pictures were taken from the bus moving the passengers from the plane to the airport terminal,
Multusmec, urari bune
