One reason I love photographing and observing bears so much is because they all exhibit so much character. Take this small cinnamon black bear, for instance. I had heard that this particular bear had been spotted walking on top of an old fence to reach the higher berry bushes that it otherwise couldn't manage. I was really hoping to get a chance to photograph this. Luckily for me, I crossed paths with this very bear again and was able to capture this unique behavior.

Black Bear (Ursus americanus) - Grand Teton National Park - Wyoming

Bear looks added... I mean, it just looks strangely proportioned to the fence?

Amazing as usual. When I saw the bear on the log from your previous trip to the Tetons, I was hoping there would be an encore. The colors really set this one off, and the behavior is well documented. Looks like a young bear.
