    Show us your pictures of lions, tigers, or bears.

    Thanks for the theme suggestion, RcMacStudent!

    And I have at least one entry I didn’t even need to leave the house to get. In other news, bears really like chicken.

    Ah.

    We had a thin lopey black bear run across the street in front of us tonight.

    I know Pandas aren’t really bears, but they are often called Panda Bears. I have a cute one, though taken with my older lower res camera. I was JUST at the zoo last weekend, but apparently it was a bear-free zoo lol. The tigers were behaving nicely for viewing, but badly for shooting, since they were hanging out at a window at all the lunch (children) they couldn’t get at. The lion was hiding. =P I suppose I’ll have to get creative, because I don’t think I’ll have a chance to go to another zoo before the contest.

    Anyway, will Pandas be off limits?

    oooh, likewise koalas?

    Pandas are in the Ursidae family, so they are bears. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panda

    Koalas are not bears

    stuffed animals are usually okay, from looking at the contests…. and i’m pretty sure that I’ll be using one, since i have a lack of pix in this department…

    NoBigDeal and staplermofo y’all cracked me up.

    I went to the Denver Zoo today, and I got a picture that will be perfect for this theme.

    It will give Elsinore “Bug Porn” collection a run for the money……

    I was wandering around all morning, and the only lens I used was my Tamron 70-300 f/4-5.6.

    People dressed in lion , tiger or bear costumes. Good or not?

    My input – sure, why not? I’d say that only a few of us have easy access to real ferocious critters.
