    Great shot ! So how close were you to the bears ? What lens is this shot with ? I have to get up and try this one day this summer, hopefully my 70-200 is long enough !

    I think you'll be okay, when the bears are in the pool at midday, it's about a 50 ft unobstructed and comfortable view from the little bridge.

    Thanks, QuattroRocket. I was about 50 or so feet away, though not on the bridge that Trish references. I shot this with a m4/3 45-200mm at 147mm, f5.6 iso 160. The lens equivalent field of view for full frame would be about 300mm. This shot is also cropped so the final view here is narrower than the lens data above suggests.

    Cool thanks all, I need to get up there myself this looked like a great opportunity. I assume any weekend morning the bears and wolves are likely to be about ?

    They live there, so they'll be about once they wake up. Peter H was the event host, so a question on the meetup itself might get an answer from him. I think he's been up there a few times.
