You and I should go take some bear pics together. Then we'll see how you feel about cropping.

It's actions like yours that give photographers a bad reputation - because it's people like you who get killed because of lack of knowledge.

I agree with you totally. It's like when someone tells me how I set a bad example

By looking at my photo, you have determended that I'm  not able to figure out that bears are dangerous.

I guess what you don't see is that I'm shooting uphill. As many rangers have said that bears don't move as well downhill, there's a plus 1 for the photographer. The other thing that you don't realize is the fact that I have my car between the bears and I, and that my car door is open for me to get into. I'll call that a plus 2.

If you feel knowledge is so important, you mayby shouldn't jump to conclusions.

Actions like these are a case of: Know about your subject and the danger becomes managable. I have seen enough adverts for bear photographer trips - and there the photographers can even mingle with the bears with no danger, because they informed themselves when and where to go.

See above.

In your shoot: If you happen to startle the bear and she has small cubs - for how long can you run at 40 kph? I'd bet not as long as the bear.

once again see above.

I see a lot of posts talking about its only a two mp increase so its unimportant.

Do people realize that all the little steps will at some point be a equal to one very large one?

Quit being so short sighted.
