Black Bear

Ursus americanus


Black Bear. Mother bear with 2 cubs (not shown).


Pine and aspen trees. This bear lives on the west side of Yellowstone National Park.


I know the pictures aren't very good. My camera only has 10x zoom and I couldn't get closer.

It doesn't matter that you do not have a large zoom lens. You saw the bear and are sharing the nice spotting with us - thanks!
