I quit taking pics for almost a year. I’ve been doing a lot better this year at shooting. Every once in a while you will gets shots you never dreamed of getting. These pics were the results of a rare chain of events and I just had to post them here (after forgetting how to login and got locked out for a week). You just don’t see this every day.
I am 50+ years old. I have only been to the smokies 3 times. My first time was in my late 40’s. I have been lucky enough to have seen bears on all my visits. I really don’t understand the people who go and have never saw one. Just got to look.
Maybe my best bear pics ever.
I didn’t take many because I didn’t want to change lens. Most were shot with iphone.
