Great capture! I don't know your distance, but with grizzlies, it is too close for me. It looks like the young one is looking right at you.

About 100 yards. I watched them for just short of an hour. They were eating, aware that I was there. They always let me know if I'm too close and they don't like me there, and I pay attention.

Nice shot. You are lucky to get them like that. I guess you need to know their safe distance and have your escape route sorted as plan B. 100 yards head start is not much if mother bear is at top speed..

I love these wildlife photos. Coming from Northern Ireland the most dangerous animal we have would be an irate badger or an angry crow.

Nice capture of some grizzlies, not the easiest to find
