I've added the information you asked for: This bear was found near by Jasper beside a little bedraggled street from a car. So I stayed in the car while taking this photo. I had to use the full optical zoom range. It's a black bear, even if his fur isn't black. The bear appeared suddenly between the scrub and didn't care about the car. It ate flowers unhindered. At once he noticed something and rised to look. After that, it walked slow-going away, not observing the car.
I use a Sony DSC-S75 with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 2/7-21 lens.
