Black Bear

By Andysnapper

Sticking with Canadian wildlife here's a female Black Bear. Now, this may look dangerous but we were actually about 30 yards from the shore and Black Bears pay no attention to anything on the water as it won't affect them, so safe as houses. Grin

Thanks for looing and for yesterday's v's and c's.

That looks like one big beast Andy. Don't think I would want those claws scratching my back.
