The bears in Shiretoko were fantastic but otherwise it wasn’t such a great trip: we had a puncture, the campsite was crap, the hotel we booked was disappointing………………
But the bears made it worth it.
We ended up staying another night in a different hotel in Shiretoko as a typhoon was closing in and we abandoned plans to go camping at Kiritappu. We ended up there anywhere but that is another story……………….

Wow. Great shots. Thought I had checked in to a David Attenborough blog! How safe were you when photographing? From the car? Yes, best not to be camping in a Typhoon…
Thanks Tony, yes it was pretty exciting watching them. We were standing on a bridge over a river.
Great animal – did you have to crop much ?
No, hardly any actually. But it was 500mm and about 20 meters away.
