OK I'll play.

 

This is a grizzly, seen in Knight Inlet, BC, Canada. 2011.

Closest I got (pic taken at 400mm and it's a crop).

And here's another one.

Black bear, seen on the lake shore near Blue River, BC, Canada.

At some point this one was so close I could have touched him from the boat.

By the way this last bear told me that the day before he ate a guy wearing a P.E.T.A. shirt. He said he nearly choked on the irony.

 

Yes, sometimes I speak to animals.

Oh wow, Paco! That's some walk to school!! And your son has clearly inherited his father's eye.

Isn't it late for bears to be out & about in Dec/Jan, though? Especially with young cubs?

Sangeeta , it was last week of November , almost 3 months already.

 

You are right because it was the last time he saw them since then . In the previous 2 months he was lucky to see 14 of them in the way to school .

Oops..I lied.  Here's one from Madera Canyon in Arizona.  It's actually a good place to spot black bear:
