Alaska Trip Bear/I'm a wilderness girl now!

Well, I'm officially a wilderness girl now, so I thought I'd share a pic from my Alaska trip last month.
This isn't great quality, but it's the only one that I have handy that is resized

WOW, that is a great bear picture. We just returned from 6 weeks in Alaska/Canada and none of my bear pictures are that good. Were you that close or were you using a telephoto lens?

Great picture! Not sure I'd want to be there up close and personal but love to see them.

Sharon,
We were with a guide and we were really that close. No telephoto lens. :-) She was probably 15 feet from me. That was our first day there and I have to say I was SCARED! lol

P.S....I did have a longer lens with me...that I used some days...but then it croaked...so luckily most of the time we were that close. The only thing I could have gotten better shots of with a long lens were some wolf pups...I still got pics...but not good ones...
