This young black bear was just sauntering along, minding his own business. He didn't know I was there until he heard my camera clicking. Then he stopped, and I swear he said "Uh oh!!". He ambled off the opposite side of the road and into the woods, less than 50 feet from where I sat. In my truck. :-)

Thanks a lot Jeff....it was funny seeing him like a kid walking along kicking a tin can, then he looked up and saw me. Funny!

Great shooting, Ian. Bears can be really tough to get a good photo of; they are so blasted black.
