    Because there is no such thing as too many bear photos, I booked a trip to the Khutzeymateen area of northern British Columbia to refill my hard drive with thousands of images. This is a long and beautiful fjord that has been a grizzly sanctuary for many years, with very limited human contact allowed. As such the bears have no fear of people, and you can photograph safely (from a zodiac) without disturbing them at all. Here is a link to a map of the area: https://goo.gl/maps/gbrR5KJ95hw

    Some of my shots:

    Sub-adults playfighting (500 mm lens)



    In the estuary (70-200 mm lens)



    On the move (70-200 mm lens)



    Splish Splash (500 mm lens)




    If you have any questions about this trip, feel free to ask!

    Thanks for viewing -

    Fantastic shots, as usual. I really like the last one. I just hope your trip was a little less intrusive to the bears than this one appears to be: Google Maps Link

    Thanks! And yes, we had a much more peaceful interaction from our little zodiac. That photo on Google is from a tour boat that is allowed just part ways into the inlet. We only saw it once during the week we were there. There are just two zodiacs that are allowed into the estuary at the end of the inlet, so the whole sanctuary is very well controlled. Regardless, the bears really don't care at all about people and rarely even raise their heads to look at you (which means you end up with lots of shots with their faces in the grass).

    Nice! The 5DIV and the 100-400 II make a great combo, don't they!

    Robin found berries

    Kayaker is already posting great pix with the new 500mm f/4 II.

    When I just go for a walk, hoping maybe I'll find a photo opportunity, I only want to deal with the weight of the SL2 with the 400mm f/5.6.
