Black Bear Still Photos

Ursus americanus

In the back of the house. Approximately 250 lbs, hungry, timid, looking for food. A magnificent and beautiful creature. May 5, 2009 at dusk. Photos are not as good as they should be with the care I thought I took when I shot. I was very excited and happy and, obviously, shaking.

After dark, the dogs were barking frequently so we knew that the bear had returned. John sent links to research on bears from Penn State and I learned that bears take more fawns than coyotes. If you are interested in the natural life of bears, read that article and this one.

  1. Wow, great photos. No wonder the dogs were barking. Sadly we have no bears (wild) here in the UK.

  2. Wow, that is close, I think I would go away as fast as I can.


Thank you for leaving a comment on meeyauw's pad. I enjoy reading constructive comments, tips and ideas that help me improve my photographs.
