    We also have bears here in Germany ... (carry on reading!) ... that have this little yellow label in their ear ... on which it reads "Steiff". They are friendly and nice and quite expensive...

    ...ah, but somehow it seems like this one is just a tiny bit different from those, despite its yellow tag. Might not read "Steiff", that one ;););).

    Have you taken these recently?
    Do you already have the first snow where you are???????

    Yeah, two days ago. There is snow in the mountains, but so far it's still fall out here on the plains.

    Actually, I later noticed that this bear was also wearing a collar - maybe a radio collar? I noticed it in a few other photos.

    Bears look so much bigger in person.... so I can imagine how big that bear is! It looks huge in the photos! Which are great :) The second one is great... the only thing I would do is photoshop the tag from his ear. LOL

    Privet, fotoljubitelju ot fotoljubitelja :)!
    Great pictures, I really like the second shot. Did you use a telephoto lens for these? I wouldn't dare using a normal!

    Haha, what's the difference between a fotoljubitelju and a fotoljubitelja? One masculine and one feminine? I must admit that my russian signature is a vicious lie, as I don't know any russian (except for привет of course, and a vague understanding of the cyrillic alphabet :) )

    Anyway, this was with a 200mm telephoto lens, but the bear was pretty close. Fortunately I was safely following him from a car (I know, that takes away some of the romance of it...)
