Napping Black Bear

10 years 2 weeks ago - 10 years 2 weeks ago #135760 by bhowdy

I watched this male Black Bear eat acorns for about two hours. He was eating as fast as he could, until he finally decided to take a nap. Temps in the mid 90's and he was wearing all black. Not the most favorable sky in the background, so I metered for the bear and took two hours worth of images!
