Black Bear

Black Bear
Sugar Hollow, White Hall, Virginia, USA, 1999
I tested camera traps for the Megatransect project on land my family has near the Shenandoah National Park. I knew we had black bears, because rocks were turned over for eating ants.

It was awesome to see this healthy young male on the first roll of film. I spent a lot of time in the summer of 2001 camping on the land, and we saw him several times — a huge adult who, so far, has shown no interest in humans. I hope he can survive another hunting season.
