My missed shot was of a Sloth bear in India...  it charged us, reared and stood on its hind legs a few meters away from our jeep...  everyone on the jeep was so scared no one shot an image... I came to my senses too late and shot an extremely blurry out of focus pic...  it haunts me! :(

I'll try and dig out the pic to share once i'm home from work!

Are you sure 500mm is long enough on FF?  ;D

Hi adhocphotographer,

I recently met the said bear (we are in the same theropy group) - he is equally haunted by the miss.

He worked on that act for the last two hibernation seasons only for it to work too well and scare the sh*t out the tourists.

Now, whenever he sees any photographers, he just marks his territory in full view, sighs and walks away.

Regards

Winnie the poo(h).
