I took these last summer with my EOS-M and kit zoom. I was shooting salmon spawning behavior with my housed EOS-1Ds2 camera in the stream below the slope you see in the pic with the bear in the trees. I heard it splash and then saw it climb the slope with the fish. I got one decent shot of it looking towards me after it got done eating. It then walked down to the stream, kept going, crossing the road that is near the stream. I walked the short distance between the stream and road and got the shots of it crossing (I was downstream of the bear). It took 20 minutes for the salmon to resume spawning behavior - all salmon where I was to a 100m or so downstream went into hiding soon after the bear got the salmon.
A few days ago I took some more bear shots within 200m of where I took these (different bears). They are posted in the other bear thread:
