Seeing one bear makes for a great day of wildlife viewing. Seeing three in a span of five miles and one hour makes for an awesome day. Such was the case on this day in June in the northern Rocky Mountains of Jasper National Park.
After spending a half hour watching one bear, we moved on and came across this one a couple of miles away. It was a bit unusual looking with its cinnamon colored face but quite handsome. This image, captured as it was taking a step forward, also showcases its impressive claws.
The bear largely ignored us and a few other people that were nearby but did keep focused on the humans as you can see by the look in its eyes.
