I haven’t been able to get close enough to tell if this bear is a boy or girl? I suspect a female as the fur around the head is large and rounded. She was suspicious of me as I had to beach the boat and walk on land to get closer. Whenever she bent down to get a mouthful of grass,I’d move silently towards her. When she looked up I froze. Bears get nervous If they see movement. She’ll get use to me after a few months.
This bear found a branch full of barnacles and mussels! I think he needs a bib.
I came across 4 bears tonight but only got shots of two. Bears never seem to do what I want them to do……it’s unbearable!
This bear knows me from last year. It hardly looked at me and was more concerned with eating a crab dinner!
This female didn’t trust me and so walked into the bush. Thats what some do when they first get to know me in the Spring. After a few months they calm down. She had a good coat for just coming out of her winters nap.
My first bear of the year. It was a male about 4 or 5 years? He was interested in eating some tasty barnacles!
I was so happy to see Juliette! She has one or two eaglets back in the nest. She likes to stretch her wings each day. She also sang a little song for me! Thats her in the top picture on the right watching her Romeo doing a fly by.
