A grizzly bear in Yellowstone October 2013 - just after the reopening. He was scrounging for roots in the parking area of Upper Falls.

I think he thought you might make a good meal?

Taken a little while ago in my garden, not exactly welcome and was feeding on bird seed. Could not resist trying to get his photo and he obliged. Never saw him again. Canon 300f2.8 Mk1 and 7d.

I'd be using a 800F5.6 with a 2X teleconverter myself :)

Great shot, interesting textures....

Thanks Don

In normal circumstances I would have used a longer lens, but this Rhino was rather calm and came so close to us. Thought the eye would make for a different image.

Very nice shot ... the setting reminds me of the New Delhi Zoo ... but I haven't been there since 1997.

Thanks, I was really hoping to see a grizzly on the trip, and could not believe my luck.

One morning last summer I was taking some sunrise photos of the Moulton Barn when a herd of Bison charged down the road.  Not far from where I was standing they split.  Most to the right but a few left behind the old barn.  Before they could reach the barn there was a fenced in area blocking them and after some pacing back and forth, this guy went for it.  Have to admit that I was worried for a bit when they were charging as I was out in the open.  Their must have been 30 or so, but it turned out to be a good photo op.
All of this happened in a hurry and I'm glad that my other camera was set and ready close by in my vehicle.  My short time experience has taught me that you never know with wildlife!

Jumping fence pic:

A very rare photo op ... well done for quick thinking and being prepared ... I can image one being worried when 30 or so massive Bison are charging close by, I mean if they can suddenly  leap off that fence what stops them from suddenly changing direction and charging at you, like you said "never know with wildlife" ... I'd probably sh!t myself first before thinking of the photo opportunity.
