This week it is Bears and Birds. This fall I got way to close to a bear that we call Big Pappy near Campbell River.We just named him that as we have seen him so much. I had another bear coming by on the other side of me so the video is very short. And it was quite late in the evening. Not on tripod, hand held so I can move fast. It is best on full screen. He seems to stare directly at me at one point and I was a little worried. I was not in a covered blind or anything, he could see me. You can't crop in on video so it is as close as it was with the lens full out. It shakes a little but overall one of my better captures. I have several more bears to put in sometime. I have about a hundred videos to do. The top shot is not cropped.

much better if you enlarge to HD
Then I was thinking there are no birds that start with the letter B. But I was wrong. There are so many B birds. So here we go with some birds for the letter B.
Black Oystercatchers at Cattle Point.
Belted Kingfisher at Albert Head.
Back Yard Birds:
Bald Eagle out at Maber Flats.
Barred Owl down the road from the house. We would not have spotted this little owl as she is so well camouflaged. We heard a little girl talking to the owl and as she left she called out "Bye Bye Owl".
Some of these pictures except the Bear were taken with the Panasonic GH4 and the owl was with the Panasonic FZ200. Some were taken with the old Canon 7D and the 100 to 400 lens.
Thanks so much for all the comments last week! Very Happy!
