I was shooting salmon under water (1Ds3 in a housing; 1Ds2 backup was in another housing in my PU) at the confluence of a clear stream with this murky one as none have yet ascended into the clear one. There were sockeye spawning where the bear was walking. Amazingly, the camera managed to focus on the the bear as it was eating the fish in the greenery. One of 2 I saw it eat there.  The bear got up on the road after the last shot as 2 cars approached spooking it. That was the last I saw of it for the day. taken with 70-300 DO on EOS-M

For those who went out with the intent of photographing bears, other then your photography gear what else to do you bring? Witnesses? Bear spray?

Just bring someone that is slower than you, and tastier... ;)
Yesterday I tried to toss an egg on someone against the wind. Today the yolk's on me.

I only ask as I frequently go for walks in the woods I find their trails often enough, I have a 200-500mm tamron antique and the temptation to just sit down and wait for one has hit me. Theeeeeeen I think other then the few times where I bumped into one and it ran away and the the info from books I have no insight into how they behave in the field. So lets stick to macro shots of mushrooms.

What is the etiquette of bear photography?

I appreciate the humour, at 6'4 my stride means I have plenty of slower companions.
The tammy would make a wicked blunt instrument I might add.

We took a tour into the Bute Inlet in Canada, BC. Spotted these little Grizzly cubs at Orford River. There were much more Grizzly bears around.

I used a 5D MKIII with the Canon 100-400 mm. The mother was with them and pretty close but the cubs were behind her. In this case we've had a guide with us but if we are hiking in the woods, where bears have their home we usually take a bell and pepper spray with us.

Had my 6D for approx 2 days before I went to Finland to the Taiga forest on the Russian border in July- the high ISO is great on the 6D. I started off with the 7D on my 100-400 but switched to the 6D to give it a try out. These are all with the 6D + 100-400L

My first post here.  Black bear at Chiricahua National Monument in SE Arizona. He huffed and stamped his feet at me so I assumed the portrait session was finished ;) 60d 300l f4
