Image of young Brown Bear (Grizzly) cub feeding on Autumn berry in preparation for it's first winter hibernation. Taken during a trip through the Denali National park in Alaska. Unfortunately the bear was more than a 100 metres away so shot with a 100mm - 400mm Telephoto while on the move. I wanted to capture the sun highlighting the bear while feeding on the lush autumn vegitation. It had snowed for the first time the day before so the bears had come lower down just below the snow line.

Thanks for taking the time to view

Regards, Brian.

Difficult subject and you can hardly direct the model. Unfortunately the bear is not in an ideal position for a good record image and there is evidence of some camera movement. Looking at the situation in the text, that's not a surprise. However, it is the image we finally look at rather than degree of difficulty.

So, a good try in the circumstances.
