This one was pushing the camera to the limit... I could not use a flash or I would scare her... so I shot with a crop camera at ISO6400, 1/25th of a second at f2.8 and 44mm focal length... This is a 1:1 crop of the image.

The best camera is the one in your hands

Nice work, I like the bear the best.  You managed to capture a peaceful and serene image of a bear, no small feat!

But the situation was not "peaceful". This bear and the second one some meters away (i hope they were young brothers, not mother and her older child) were angry because 30 minutes ago we chased them away and now they suddenly appeared again very close to us while we were watching beavers. I fear, we have blocked their way to supper... Luckily, we didn't become their meal.  :o

My contribution to this long thread: A 'Hang-around'.
North of Copenhagen there is a large population of red deer. This is shot in early October 2013, when the red deer were rutting. 
This bull did not have his own herd of females, so he was hanging around to look for his opportunity.
I could get quite close to him (this was about as close as I wanted to get) and was happy to get this framing of the shot.
Canon 6D, with 70-200 f/4 L IS @154mm (cropped to around 70% of frame)
ISO 800, 1/250s, f/5.6.

Keen amateur. Current kit: Canon 6D since April 2013. 24-105 f/4, 70-200 f/4 IS, 50mm f/1.4, 100 macro f/2.8 L IS, 1.4x II TC, 16-35 f/2.8 (I), Tamron 150-600mm. Canon 420 EX flash.

PK that shot is terrific!  If I had more wall space and less of a queue of stuff to get framed...

Looks can be deceiving, compositionally it's quite peaceful.

Hi 2n10.
After the first two pics, as I scrolled down and saw the hares ears, I was thinking now he didn't find that up a tree surely. Nice pics, I like the way you can see the shadow on the back of the hares ears. Did the canine (coyote?) catch whatever it is he was focused on?

Cheers Graham.
