Caught this guy storing up on huckleberries for the winter in Grand Teton earlier this month.

Whoh! Up close and personal with one of nature's apex predators. How close were you the bear (better yet- which lens allowed you to safely take this photo)?

It's a cinnamon black bear, not a grizzly. I took the shots from my vehicle.

Great pics, but those aren't huckleberries they're service berries.

Still great pics.

If they're service berries, they should do their service as huckleberries. ;-)a

I love huckleberries: pie, ice cream, etc... I love bears... I prefer more distance from the bears than the huckleberries.

Great photos, by the way. ;)
