“Pic of the Week”, October 17, 2014: Black Bear, Banff National Park

IMG_8616

This is one of my favorite wildlife photos from this past year.  The bear was wandering in the ditch along the Icefields Parkway in Banff National Park, foraging as he went.  He didn’t seem to mind my stopping beside the road, rolling down the passenger window and snapping his picture.  Seems almost posed, but he was actually moving at a pretty brisk pace. When he came across a berry bush, he’d stop and suck all the fruit off — almost like a living vacuum cleaner — then move on!
