Darlene, Here is something you should fear. I know it's only a "Black" Bear, and not nearly as dangerous as a Brown or Grizzly; however, the locals watching these teddy bears had their cars close by and their keys in their hands.
This was the day after the Bald photo at the same place with a little better lens. Tough lighting condition with sharp shadows. Try to pose one of these. The bear was going into a burrow in the brush where they liked to eat their catch. The cubs were right behind. I think this was a Sockeye Salmon, but I am not a fisherman.
