Cinnamon Black Bear, Yellowstone National Park

A Hungry Bear

I started this photo blog a little over a year ago in Yellowstone.  I thought then that it would be a good time to start the blog because I would have, hopefully, a lot of images to get the blog going.  As it turned out I got more images than I could deal with.  By the time I got all the images downloaded each night it was 11:00 pm and I wanted to be back in the park by sunrise.  No problem I thought.  I’ll post the Yellowstone images on the blog when I get home.  I was going to do that to some degree anyway.

As it turned out, when I got home I started going to nearby Point Reyes National Seashore and, to my surprise, there were enough wildlife photo opportunities at Point Reyes that I never did post much of last spring in Yellowstone.   I cancelled my trip this spring which would have been my third spring trip in a row.  I started posting images of spring in Yellowstone a week ago without much thought about it.  I guess I missed being there.  I think I’ll continue for a while.

This cinnamon black bear was a regular outside the northeast entrance last spring.  I don’t know where the boundary is between Park Service land and Forest Service land. To me, he’s a Yellowstone bear.

    Really nice shot, Jim! It’s fun to see your spring shots from Yellowstone this time of year. I often find that I don’t like posting images too far outside of the season that they were taken, especially if they are somehow connected to that season (i.e., breeding plumage vs basic). Even if it has to wait for a year then, sometimes an image feels like a more appropriate selection if it’s the right season.

    I am enjoying your Yellowstone pictures Jim. Since neither one of us made it to the park this spring, it is a nice way to remember trips from the past.
