I finally got to witness and snap a Black Bear catching a salmon in the wilderness. You beauty. To snap this I had to go to Ketchikan in Alaska at Neets Bay. Hey, ho, what a sight. Does a bear fish in the forest? Yes it does.
At this time of the year (most) Black Bears hunt for fresh salmon in the crystal clear waters of Alaska. They wait and wait – concentration is the key word. At times they take up different positions in the hope the salmon will be more plentiful. They hunt, they catch and usually go into the forest to devour them. Then they get stuck into a feed of berries and grass. After that, I was told, they fall asleep. A few hours later they start the whole process again. I snapped this one concentrating in Ketchikan at Neets Bay.
There she was just walking down the street at Vancouver Harbour in Canada so I quickly snapped a picture. I was far away from her, but I wish I’d been close enough to have a chat. But alas, she walked out of my life never to be seen again. (As far as I can see, the dress standard in Vancouver is far from colourful or elegant, so it was wonderful to see such a stylish woman). I wonder if the stole was beaver, moose, hare or fox. Maybe it was kangaroo.
LAKE LOUISE, a great place for a bee to be. The bees love those beautiful purple flowers. They jockey for position, coming and going in a buzz of excitement. Canadians really have a great love for bees and are continually advertising the fact. Without bees, they say, in the future the world could be doomed.
