Wells Gray Provincial Park Black Bears

Last weekend I was able to spend some time watching a cinnamon-coloured Black Bear work an area of plants to find the ones he/she wanted to eat. It reminded me of a person transecting a beach with a metal detector. The bear would walk in a zig-zag nose to the ground. It was apparent it wasn’t using its eyes at all but, instead, was relying on its keen nose. It was following a roadside and would switch sides of the road sporadically, covering each side. It was very picky and not just munching down anything green. I guess you can afford to be picky in mid June.

Time to try the other side
This more typically black one was literally on the drive way of the property I was trying to get to. There’s a caption for this photo that includes something like looking for a light to smoke weed.
