I can well imagine you'd never forget such an experience, so close to this powerful animal with it's young, Ron.

Your brave! When I was a small child not even school age my brother and I were eating blackberries and a big black bear ran us under my dad's car. It was a Ford Galaxy 500 . Thank God it was a tank of a car. The cub ran under the car with us and the mother went crazy. She had her front feet on the back trunk just bouncing the car up and down our heads were hitting the underneath of the car. My brother was 3 and I was 5 but I kicked that cub out from under the car. I new the cub had to go for her to go and they left when the cub ran out. I have a grat fear of bears to this day. I could not have been this close in the wild. Great job, wonderful shot.

And this is why I don't like to go hiking far into the bush by myself. We have lots of bears, cougars and deer that prowl the neighbourhood at night. A superb shot you've captured here.
