    That is priceless !! Now you have to come up with a powerful "caption".

    This requires the use of your "imagination" !!

    Wildlife photographs are the biggest selling images in the state !!

    Another perfect 10 !! Mr. Tull777 !!!

    That is just too much !!

    The subject matter is all that matters and you have again, created another masterpiece !!

    You will have no problem at all ever, marking and selling / leasing your images.

    all I can add is..............Whoa !!

    Fantastic Job well done !

    Thanks for stopping by and glad you like the shot. I believe that we were about 30' from this bear.

    Nope, just dog treats.

    If you have not visited the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, you should. The animals are all in large fenced in areas but still fun to check out and photograph.

    I just got through watching a Discovery Channel special on Alaska bears ...and what a HOAX!!! This guy would sit in a Plexiglas box while "WILD" bears approached and fed on parts of a moose carcass ...they set up a tent with a mannequin inside to see what the bears would do and Oh The Humanity! Dramatic camera angles and music would have you believe that these "WILD" bears were just acting on their "WILD" instincts by showing aggressive behavior.

    Wrong! The whole show was filmed in the bear pens at the AWCC.

    My wife, son and I noticed the exaggerated forgery right from the start. Pretty funny how the host played up each scene by stating how these "WILD" bears were so scary and how they had set up their experiment on a well used bear trail next to a pond full of Salmon(?).

    It has been years since I have enjoyed a true documentation of the real outdoors. It seems that just about everyone on the nature channels have gone the way of Michael Moore.

    So, if you want a good laugh, check it out on the Discovery Channel.

    Ain't that truth

    As a child I remember watching Wild America and Wild Kingdom.

    Some trickery was involved in these shows but it was far better than our current options.

    That reminds me of a friend back in Oregon who had a wort hog mounted in two sections ...the front half and the back half. The front half is in the living room and the back half is located on the same spot opposite side of the wall in his den. You got it, hindquarters and it's tail pointing to the sky. Pretty dang funny!!!

    Seriously man, this is the best image of a bear I have ever seen. Send it in to some magazines and such. This is an unusually good shot

    Eddie, I think the image is saleable even if it's not a wild bear . . people like pictures of bears, and this one is very good.

    Cheers,
