I have been working on a few more of my bear pictures this Sunday afternoon. Oh my, they are such beautiful creatures! I know that you are counting the days until the Katmai brown bears series begins.
By happenstance, one of the gals who was on our Alaska trip last year just sent me the link to this video. It shows a field counting and tagging exercise for black bears in Ontario, Canada. Perhaps this will tide you over a bit. Enjoy!
