    Don't tell people it was at a wildlife reserve in the future. It'll make the shot more interesting.

    It's still a good shot though.

    Looks like he came out of the move The Jungle Book. Like he's scratching an itch and going to sing the "The Bear Necessities". Looks like one relaxed bear to me.

    I really don't think it's a male, maybe because of her equipment... Nice pic.

    For those of you old enough to remember, I thought of the Hamms Bear commercials when we photographed this.

    At the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary the Black Bears are wild. It's in a remote area and the bears are free to leave the sanctuary's boundaries at any time. They come into the Sanctuary only during the summer months. If you would like to know more, here's a link: Black Bear Viewing at the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary - The American Bear Association
