black bear algonquin park
had some spare time this afternoon so took the opportunity to leave the Inn and drive into algonquin park, in fact i was following up on a sighting of 4 sand hill cranes on one of the lakes, well as they say, along the way i found a black bear eating grass along a rock cut by the highway, as i understand it, a bear will eat grass after it first emerges from hibernationn so as to gently get the stomach working again after a winter shut down,.
I had no time to compose the shot as it was a suprise to us both, was taken into the setting sun.(still looking for the cranes !!)
