Today marks the last day of our holiday vacation. Back to the grind tomorrow morning .. at least until the 18th. Decided it was probably prudent to get posts out while I still had some free time. New year, new job role, new organization likely means a lot of time spent getting up to speed on new responsibilities while putting a bow on previous efforts. All that has a way of digging into my free time – couple that with new Arduino, 3D Printing and Halloween projects and you have a recipe for missing post quotas. So with that, I bring you another post in the current theme of wildlife babies.
See that Black Bear in the shot above? – hint, it is the one sporting the cinnamon coloring, but still classified as a Black Bear. That would be a female (that is my guess based on my memory of the situation in which the shot was taken). As with the previous batches of posts, this shoot came from the Yellowstone National Park trip back in May 2013. Things have started to cloud a bit but almost certain that is the female (for reasons that will be apparent in a minute). Notice how she is intently scanning the woods – very similar to the alertness the Pronghorn doe was employing to keep a watchful eye for her fawn predators (link here).
Turns out she wasn’t the only Black Bear in the area.
