He rubbed his tummy on the log.
I went looking for bears tonight,first time this year. I went up the eastern shore of Fortune Channel for several miles not seeing any. I made my return run and just as I was about to leave Fortune I did spot one but it was in the shade. Wouldn’t you know it! You know how I hate black bears in shade!
Having said that……10% of something is better than 100% of nothing! It looks like a matured female.
I love the eyes on this bear! She has such innocent eyes! She recognizes me! I do think she likes me.
I usually stand in the river with my canoes bow line tied around my waist.Being in the middle of the stream not only puts me off of the bears patrolling routes but also frees up my hands for the camera.
I saw Teddy walking towards me from upstream.She walked to just opposite me & simply waited there all the while staring at me with such a sweet face.I do believe she wants to get closer. For instance, she pretended she saw something in the rear of my canoe. As if she saw a salmon there!
So she waded out into the water to go check.I couldn’t allow her to do that & so told her to stop & she did exactly that.
When I got into my canoe to head back downstream the current was fast.She began to follow me,I did see her face change when she realized she couldn’t keep up. She stopped,turned around & went back upstream.
I bet If I threw her my hat she’d walk away with it! I’ve never had a bear girlfriend before.
She’ll be going to bed soon & I look forward to seeing her again!
Bears will often times put their head under the water to see If there are any dead salmon snagged? This guy came up empty mouthed.
