Berry Focused

There is a chill in the air, the leaves have begun to change, the nights are getting colder, fall has arrived. This cinnamon black bear (Ursus americanus cinnamomum) is standing high above the ground with very little support from the skinny branches of the hawthorn berry bush. One by one this bear is consuming all the hawthorn berries trying to fatten up before winter sets in and it goes into its den for the duration. Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
