Bear Portrait

Dear Friends, this bear was in the ditch as we drove by, his head popped up and he scurried into the woods.  Sorry for the grass but I did not leave the truck and could not get a good angle.  He was huge and wanted to cross the road, the deer flies were attacking and he was looking for a good swim to drown them. Yes I was using a telephoto lens  til Tomorrow MJ
