I was in Finland last year to photograph wild brown bears. It was quite an adventure as you photograph only during the night so that means 16 hours in a hide from 4pm without much or sometimes no sleep at all as the bears get active at night but it was well worth it being that close to wildlife!
Only after a few hours these two youngsters suddenly appeared from the woods. I can tell you it gets your adrenaline pumping!

In the middle of the night I've caught two bears doing some hokie pokie in the woods. I gave you the decent version after the hokie pokie when they got distracted as another male bear arrived at the scene. He didn't come close, however, but stayed at a safe distance.
I shot this image at 1:00 am in the morning at 1/100, f/5.6 at iso 6400.
