I saw this decently large Himalayan bear sitting on its plump backside at the Himalayan Zoological park in Bulbulay, near Gangtok.
This guy was my new 100-400’s first subject and boy was it an experience. He was quite far away to get him into my frame, but I somehow waited and managed to get some decent shots of him.
Since this was my first attempt at the 2.5 kilogram set, the camera shook a wee bit. But, I guess over time, I will get used to it.
Coming back to the Himalayan bear….It was good for me to see a Himalayan bear for the first time in my life, but I would prefer if a wild animal such as him is left in the wild.
