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 .

This black bear was peering at me from the bushes in my garden in Prince George BC.

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

I love those spectacled bears, @@Treepol ! We're seriously thinking about a family trip to Peru (well I've been thinking about it for a while but now more seriously) and definitely want to visit Chaparri!

 

Here are some of my bear photos from Alaska:

 

This is at the Wildlife Conservation Center in Anchorage, Aug 2013:

Love both series of bears.

Only ones I've seen were on a hike in the mountains of Va; we took a wrong turn...oops.

 

Bear on the trail.

If that bear portrait isn't the epitome of “up close and personal”, I don't know what is.

How you managed such an image without yourself becoming lunch, I have no idea!

It's a GREAT photo !!!!!!!!!
