  1. Travis, did you really shoot this bear with a 25 mm lens? Were you so close? Posted 8 years ago
    1. Yes Jivko, I was within 30 meters or so of him. He wasn't too concerned, and neither was I. But he didn't want me any closer! I have to get close if I want a decent picture with my point and shoot! :) Posted 8 years ago

The American black bear is a medium-sized bear native to North America. It is the continent's smallest and most common bear species. Black bears are omnivores with their diets varying greatly depending on season and location. They typically live in largely forested areas, but do leave forests in search of food.
