    Those are excellent, but the cats in the snow image is incredible. I'm still hoping to get a bear photo in the wild this year.

    I have been to Tennessee several times, hoping to see/photograph a bear in the wild. Never has happened. But several times I've had friends go to the same locations just a few days later and see bears. :doh:

    My daughter and I encountered a bear a few years ago while hiking together, in the same spot where I was yesterday, at that. As we rounded a bend, I saw it up on its back legs, sniffing the air and watching us. Before I could even pull out the camera, it had dropped to all fours and sprinted down the trail, then made a quick 90 and down the hillside into the undergrowth. Probably a good thing it went the other way, as it stood about 8 feet on its hind legs and looked to be at least 300 pounds. I visit that state forest many times a year, and have never gotten a clear view of one again, yet a guy at work goes to the same place and brings back photos and videos of bears taken with his cell phone! I need to send some of Andy's fleas his way.

    Oh, you have no idea. She's relentless when she wants attention.

    The squirrel just stayed on the branch when I stepped outside, which is only mildly surprising until you consider that was one very vocal Hawk zipping back and forth through the trees around my house. It was moving fast and I got the tree in focus but not the bird.

    Went hiking this past weekend, brought the long lens for fun. I often see eagles, so when I'm going somewhere with l-o-o-o-o-o-o-ng views like this, I kick myself when I don't remember the 50-230.
