don't get TOO excited now

a very excited and energetic sun bear at the Portland Oregon zoo.  The picture was taken early on a Sunday morning; either just before or after his breakfast.

The quality of light in your photos is always so nice.
Kay: Thank you, Red Pen! wink
That is one laid back bear!! LOL
I like the color tones in this picture. Very different and creative. Nicely done.
Kay: Thank you, DD! wink I was worried about this bear...he looked so out of it.
Beautiful toning and light in this photo, Kay...such a darling critter..I bet he'd be happy romping around in the woods where he belongs. smile
Kay: I agree, Suzanne. I wish that all wildlife was just that: wild. Unfortunately, this cannot be so.
It is practically leaping off the page! Nice one smile
Kay: Thank you very much, Martin wink
Great post processing here. everything looks so golden!
Kay: Thank you so much for your comment!
Fantasic representation, however, don't bears eat people, and you weren't that far away???? You still in one piece, Kay?
Kay: LOL grin Glad I was in one piece after shooting this picture. This bear acted tame compared to the mean Asian elephant that wanted to get to me. I think she wanted my camera.
Nice shot and tones Kay.
Kay: Thank you, Bridge!
In the shade, with some sun... great photo.
Kay: Thank you, Chantal!
Oh so excited, I would hate to see his bored look. Lovely capture, I don't think I have ever seen one of these. Except for the koala we have no bears.
Kay: I love Koala bears. Some years back, the San Diego Zoo featured a baby albino that was so cute.

Your usual pp works very well with this picture and the composition is excellent. I will post a picture tomorrow where I tried to emulate your soft look pp.

Excellent picture and humorous comment.
Kay: I can't wait to see your photo, Louis! wink
Awwww, he looks soo sad, what did the "evil" Kay woman do you poor bear?

Oh, she did not speak to your manager before taking this shot lol grin

Kay: S/S grin I am laughing right now at your comment! Yep you are right. I did not talk to the bear's manager before grabbing a pic...one of those friggin, paparazzi, you know. Perhaps tmz.com would be interested in buying this one?
beautiful glow on this very very lazy picture...
Kay: Thank you so much, Sam wink

This is priceless, Kay! I hope it was AFTER his breakfast, otherwise I'm afraid we'd think he was totally depressed!

There is something about your pics of late that is so YOU. Is it a blurring effect? I'm not sure I've figured it out yet but it's very appealing. Don't you love how we all are getting our "signature" touch on our pics. smile
Kay: Ginnie, thank you so much for your comments...I love them because you always have something new to say. There is a gaussian blur and blending applied to the photo, and on top of that is another "blurry" vignette around the edges.
Ohhh! It seems tired, sad and boring. But the photo has a very special light. smile
Kay: Thank you Jose-Angel. He does seem tired, doesn't he? Poor thing.
Wonderful lighting in this photograph. Also an unusual capture - sort of a non-action shot. lol! I like it a lot. (:o)
Kay: LOL grin Thanks, Rosalyn! The bear was loving the sunshine.
I wonder if he could give me a harmless hug.
Kay: LOL grin With those claws, Busola, he would probably retract them first. I could see him easily give you a bear hug!
