Equipment: Nikon D3100 w/ 70-300mm Zoom Lens
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.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)
