Black Bear. by birthmark1 Black Bear. by birthmark1
I was surprised to see a third young black bear sleeping up a tree... I started to get a little nervous that a Mother bear may be around... they look like they are about 2 years old and sometimes they still follow the mother around at this age...

again I wish the photo could have been a little better, but it was dark and raining out... and I was trying to be as quiet as possible not to disturb them..

From what I know most of the time Black Bears don't really attack, and I've seen this one video of a person actually approaching a Black Bear and showing that everything that everyone thinks is a sign of an attack is actually just a bluff.
This is the video if you're wondering:

Wow, great shot. These animals are extremely hard to find out in the wild. I'm always trying too track them down as well as mountain lions but always failed at doing so.

Yes, cubs are much for frightening than older bears. You always have to wonder where mother is. We get bears in our yard here too, both kinds. I'm wary of them, but they don't bother me as much as the mountain lions. Bears, at least, are somewhat predictable. Anyway, this is a very nice capture. You show us some personality in the bear's repose, much better than the standard zoo shots I'm used to seeing.

As others have said, the pose is absolutely perfect, very funny. But I'm amazed you said it was dim and rainy (and sneakily taken). This turned out very nicely under those conditions.

I'm not to sneaky with the bears, I make enough noise so they are well aware that I am there, Bears don't like suprises very much... but still you can't move fast or make sudden loud noises...Much like most wild animals..
