This cinnamon colored black bear is a color phase of the American black bear which is a medium-sized bear native to North America. He appeared to be looking for something edible in the tree.
This was a fairly open mountain valley car park surrounded by conifers on one side and a few aspens on the other. The Bear was seen feeding on dandelions along the cut verges of the car park. It eventually disappeared into the conifers.
I was sorting through some photographs taken last year and came across this one. Perhaps not my sharpest ever photograph but I do like the pose.
