American Black Bear (Ursus americanus) I had to pull out my camera on-the-fly to grab a shot of this large black bear emerging from the woods as we passed (in our vehicle) on the road. We did not stop for these photos (why there is blur) as I did not want to disturb the bear. Unfortunately, I had no time to adjust settings for a proper shot!

        1. Haha! I suppose so! It was even more beautiful in person though. This photo makes it look quite small, but it was a big one! Posted 2 months 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. Sometimes they become attracted to human communities because of the immediate availability of food. The American black bear is listed by the IUCN as Least Concern, due to the species' widespread.. more
