Young Dew Covered Bear

Young Dew Covered Bear

Seeing a crowd gathering in the distance, Dick and I began walking down the road. This yearling bear came running towards us along the raised edge of the road next to a field. About twenty feet from us he scampered up a tree. Serendipitous as so many of these wildlife shots are. Please view in "original".
