More Bears

These are more photos from the Tweedsmuir Provincial Park area of B.C., Canada following the last post..."Some Bears"...

I posted this photo in my very first "blog" a couple of months ago. I post it again here, because as I said this is my favorite :) The cub is a bit traumatized in this photo and staying close to Mom, because Mom just had a run-in with another bear in the brush behind them. We heard a lot of snarling and thrashing about while the cub was waiting at water's edge, very anxious. The other bear emerged from the fray and was seen walking away...Mom,,the victor !

This was actually the bear that tangled with Mama Bear earlier.

A couple of Merganser Ducks.

So, we were introduced to this little guy at 11,000 feet up in the Beartooth Mountains outside Yellowstone Park...the brave Pika :) here in Canada while hiking into a rather remote area in search of bears, we came upon this fellow. In Canada, they call them "Peeka's". In any case, I was happy to see this tough but cute critter :)

#1 and #2 for this expressions in the faces! But in the end I like #6 most. I'm sure it was a fast little fellow and difficult to catch.

Thanks, Sigrid...One would think, as you did, that the little Pika would be difficult to capture, but as I discovered with the first ones that I saw in Montana, they seem to enjoy the attention grinning They show no fear of humans as they just sit and munch on their grass.  Very interesting little critters !

It's amazing that you were able to get so close to the bears.

I thought that also when we first ventured out and started seeing these 300 pound beauties,,,I was a bit intimidated for sure.  But our guides were all pretty nonchalant about being so close, so we soon relaxed as we learned the bears will leave you alone if you act correctly :)  Besides, they were intent on feeding...
