I realized all the photos I have been posting from my week with the brown bears of Lake Clark National Park have been more of the animal in the landscape which tends to be my favorite type of wildlife image.  So today, I thought I would do a nice close up of a beautiful, big brown bear!

Speaking of bears, our August photo tour has sold out, and there are just a few spots left for our June bear photo tour for next summer – for more information see:  bear and puffin photography tour.

  1. Can’t wait for the August tip! Look forward to seeing big brown bears just like this.
    Great shot, love the light…

  2. That’s just a beautiful bear and -shot! I love close-ups! 🙂 (P.s: I wonder why you got a comment in Norwegian, above here. :P)

  4. Another nice shot with beautiful lighting. What aperture did you use here? I recall with bears you may have to use a higher aperture to get both the nose and eyes in focus.

    Thanks a lot!

    @ Scott This was @ f/8. I was using a 600 f/4 with a 1.4 x converter, so I already had enough DOB wide open but stopped down slightly for sharpness.
