This picture was captured by a friend Richard Sidey http://www.richardsidey.com who was panning as the bear went by. I was in the process of capturing the image of a grey jay and ended up smack in the middle of his shot. This shows how close some of these encounter are, I think that I was more startled than scared. This was a sub adult bear maybe two or three years old.
He was followed up by a 2nd bear who stopped 4ft right and front of me. This bear decided that he needed to poo poo and did so while starring straight at me. I'm thinking that maybe he was emptying his system to make room for me.....lol
