Very nice! Looks like you had a fabulous trip! Love the pelicans! All were quite special. I have never seen so many mushrooms from the area!
Thanks for posting!

Just to give you an idea on how much you can see in the two parks in only a week. Takes some effort but worth every second! You tube uploaded the pictures out of order so it bounces around the two parks.

This is my favorite topic and I always look forward to seeing the different shots everyone has captured. They are all great! The first pic with the sow and cub is so unique and cute with the cub cautiously sharing some food with mom (at least I think he looked cautious in this photo.....maybe he was really digging in) . The cute cub near the picnic area looks like he was posing for the pic. The shot of the bear in Blacktail Plateau is a beautiful one with the lush greenery and wildflowers surrounding him or!

Very fascinating Mike. I had no idea this type of courting ritual took place. Thank you for taking incredible pics to capture it for us!

Great pix. Anyone know the status of Rainy Lake sow and 3 cubs? Haven't heard much of late. Spent a few great days with them in June with the family. - Mike S.

CWR, nice shots. Thanks!
My SX30 is still working reasonably well, so I will stick with it. I tend to beat them up carrying them in a bag on my saddle many times a week, so I expect to eventually need something else and was wondering ahead of time about these upgrades.

This morning, I was fortunate enough to photograph a bull moose dig a scent pit to attract an interested cow.

This is just one of 10 images in the sequence I posted on this page:

Hope you enjoy seeing it!

I agree that the SX60 might be interesting, but I have an SX50 that suits me fine.

Basically, if I am going to be within 50 yards of my car, then I get my Sigmonster out. However, it requires a very substantial tripod, so it is not that portable.

If I am going to be dayhiking within a few miles of my car, then I take my Canon 7D with Tamron 150-600 lens. The I.S. makes it workable without any tripod, like for birding.

If I am going longer distances, like a multi-day backpacking trip, then I take the little SX50. I do carry a lightweight tripod for it, but the tripod seldom sees use except maybe at the last light of the evening. An equivalent of 1200mm allows me to get to just about all wildlife without the tripod.

Of course, if the 7DII actually has improved noticeably at high ISO, that may be the best of both worlds (image quality plus more rugged and faster-paced sports/wildlife performance), but I want to see more examples from it first.


That may well be the best option Max. I'll sit tight and see how that Mark II works out. If it gets good reviews on ISO performance, maybe I'll ditch the Tamron towards funding the 7DII. If there are any doubts about ISO performance in the reviews tho, I may bite the bullet for the 5d3. I've been bothered by noise since the old 400 vs. 100 or slide film days so I should know better by now!

Mike, that first shot is the one that EVERYONE who's ever been there wishes they could get. I don't know how many mornings you had to get up way before dawn to get it, but it was worth it! Thanks for sharing.
