American Black Bear

What did the polar bear say when she saw campers in sleeping bags?

Mmmm, Hot Pockets…

Interesting Fact: Black bears are very opportunistic eaters. Most of their diet consists of grasses, roots, berries, and insects. They will also eat fish and mammals—including carrion—and easily develop a taste for human foods and garbage. Bears who become habituated to human food at campsites, cabins, or rural homes can become dangerous and are often killed—thus the frequent reminder: Please don’t feed the bears!

  1. You were out in the woods with a bear behind? Great photo. The bear looks like its looking for you.

    • Not this time, that was actually in my backyard, and I was on the second floor. He was looking for acorns. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂

      • Nice to observe it from the comfort of your second floor window, and not your backyard.

      • Oh yeah that is for sure, I enjoyed this a lot more then the last time when I came across one in the woods. Hehehe.

    • Thank you very much, I am glad that I wasn’t in a tree hehehe. But I was on the second floor, she showed up to my backyard looking for food. Since I have acorn tree that’s what it was eating. I am glad that you enjoyed my post and Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. Night shot? I see shadow under the bear’s jaw and behind the ear. Flash caused? No matter, the image is great, the bear’s coat is so shiny and clean.

    • Good catch, I did shot that at night. This Bear showed up to my backyard so I had lights on and a flash. Also I was shooting from the second floor. You definitely see everything in my photo I am really glad about that. Thank you very much for stopping by and Happy Blogging! 🙂
