This evening, a few houses up from ours here in south Boulder, there was a bear hanging out in a neighbor’s tree.
I grabbed a camera and took a few images before the sun set. Enjoy!
Tech specs: these were taken with a Canon 5D Mark III, using a 300 mm f/4 lens with 2x extender (for a 600 mm f/8 lens). The images were taken at f/8, ISO 4,000 and 1/250 second, handheld, using the image stabilization built into the lens. I wasn’t sure how the IS would work with the 2x extender, but it seemed to create sharp images.
