The awesome thing about this picture is that I’m not using the zoom whatsoever. I was literally this close to the bear! I was in the safety of my husband’s truck, so it was really cool to be able to see it so close (about 2 feet away). The bear was completely unfazed by us and continued eating his dinner (some nice grass by the looks of it).
We also saw a mama bear and her two tiny cubs on our way up to the hot springs, but they dashed into the woods before we could get a good look at them.
Total bear count so far this year – 5.
