NPhoto - - Over To You -

My favourite shot over the two days has to be this wider view of the lone bear from the first evening that I shot on the 300mm f/2.8, without a tele­con­verter. It was walk­ing from the back of the scene to­wards me, and I waited un­til I could see the whites of its eyes be­fore shoot­ing! I wanted a nice wide view, and there’s some great dap­pled light on the bear. I no­ticed that he was look­ing at a fly buzzing over­head, which added to his thought­ful ex­pres­sion. I placed the bear on the right of the frame, to give space in the di­rec­tion it was look­ing. At ISO100 I had a shut­ter speed of 1/320 sec, which froze the mo­tion of the bear just enough as it pon­dered the in­sect above.
