12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Smelling the Berrries

A black (cinmamon) bear was sitting in a tree eating berries, tried to capture a moment as the bear pulled the branch towards him to eat the berries. This was somewhat difficult as had a fairly limited field of view since I was shooting through the passager side window from the car, sitting in the driver's seat. Did manage a shot that captured the action with the bear's paw pulling the branch of berries toward him just before putting them in its mouth.
