  1. Knowing that you're truly spotting these in the wild I can almost feel the tension sitting here safely. Posted 8 years ago
    1. These moments are definitely tense situations, but I don't feel threatened by any of the bears. I respect them, and know how close I can get and have both parties still feel comfortable. And it gets me some cool shots! :) 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.
