Black Bear

From our trip to the Portland Zoo. He was very active and playful. I had never seen a pair of bears play like these today did. (I missed a shot of them both.)

This guy has sucha a handsome, shiny coat! Even the photo captures the gleam! It must have been awesome watching bears at play - from a safe distance!

I love bears, but you don't want to get too close! Lovely shot :)

Very nice. Not someone I would want to meet close up.

That's an awfully big bear! I just read about several people who were mauled by a bear in Yellowstone National Park. Thank goodness this one is in a zoo!

Nice work! It's so hard to shoot in a zoo! The angle usually isn't optimal, so many people around, often a cage or wire. Nice shot.

I haven't been to the Portland zoo since I was a kid. This picture makes me realize I really do need to go soon! Hah. Just like SOON I'm going to go on that beach trip I keep promising myself ...

The arrangement of their zoo is quite similar to the Buffalo zoo which I have seen three kinds of bears there. Very nice shot of the black bear, the hair is so shinny. Looks like he wanted to be petted.

My 1st time to join CC. Have a great weekend!
