Check out his sad eyes LARGE
The American black bear (Ursus americanus) is a medium-sized bear native to North America. It is the continent’s smallest and most widely distributed bear species. Black bears are omnivores with their diets varying greatly depending on season and location. They typically live in largely forested areas, but do leave forests in search of food. Sometimes they become attracted to human communities because of the immediate availability of food. The American black bear is the world’s most common bear species.
I was thrilled about how this picture of a male black bear came out considering the low light conditions, the distance I was from the subject, and the mere seconds I had to adjust my camera settings (He just appeared out of nowhere). I can’t get over the expression on his face. Such sad eyes.
