Elk Shooting Surprise (See Caption)

A disappoingting shot...but a shot, nonetheless...

While shooting images of 6 Elk at a huge berry bush,
I looked up to see this black bear standing on his
hind legs to have a look at me--no more than 25 feet away.
He and I calmly continued for the next 20 minutes, though
I couldn't get much of a shot due to bushes, and the
quickly-darkening evening (note the flash-induced eye-glow...).

Redwood Forest, California, USA

Canon EOS 10D
1/60s f/4.0 at 245.0mm iso400 with Flash full exif
