Glad this wasn't me. Just a little too close for comfort!

Wow! A story he can tell for the rest of his life. It's insane.

Unbelieveable. In MI we don't have grizzlies. Just black bears and a lot of them.

The writer called it a 500 pound grizzly. He should be so lucky. Maybe double that and a little more.

I'm doubtful it seems all so controlled, these animals don't waste time on the camera when there's a tasty photographer within reach...to hops and a jump and lunch is served!

It's the B+H ad on the same page that's got me suspicious you never know those New Yorkers are very well connected in Grizzly circles...

Nope this is a conspiracy, a plot to push waffeling Nikonians to press the Buy button on the D800, pity the fools!

Better be alive than dead... good reaction of the photographer!

Poor tripod!

I think you're right. I recognize that bear from Grizzly Adams!

$17k worth of equipment. I doubt the photo is worth that much.
