1808_8391 Omnivore

Bears will eat just about anything. This Black Bear had to vacate his preferred fishing spot when a dominant bear entered the area. Pushed away from the spawning channel, he appeared content to graze the grass while keeping watch. Photographers were no concern whatsoever; he knew the danger would come from other bears. At this point he was the closest bear (to my camera). I kept an eye - and lens - on him, because a bear in the grass is worth two on the beach.


This is the final bear shot in the current set; starting something new tomorrow.
