This young Black Bear (Ursus americanus) cub was exploring a grassy meadow in Yellowstone and kept stopping to smell the wildflowers and grasses, presumably to decide whether there was anything that would be tasty enough to eat. I watched and photographed him for around half an hour and during this time there was no sign of his mother and he didn’t seem in the least bit concerned about my presence. Photographic opportunities were however limited as the grasses were mostly taller than he was so it was difficult to get a clear shot!
