I have seen a number of bears in my time of hiking and backpacking and yet I have never been able to catch one on camera. They have always bolted so fast I never even got the opportunity to get my phone out.
On my last backpacking trip in the Smokies last month, I rounded a bend and looked up at the trail and there it was. Just standing in the middle of the trail staring at me. I don't think I've ever been so excited in my life. Not only did I get a photo, but video too! S/he only moved off trail when I started talking to it.
