Black Bears 3 images Created 9 Feb 2015
Black Bears can be found in most of North America and vary in size based on habitat. We have been very fortunate to observe and photograph black bears in Yellowstone, Alaska, North Carolina and Georgia. We have spent full days watching the antics of single bears and mothers with cubs. A typical behavior for a mother with young cubs is to send them up a tree while she hunts for food. We learned that bears can climb trees like monkeys as we watched cubs scramble 30'-40' up a tree to wait for their mother. Always keep a safe distance from bears especially if they have a cub.
