This sighting was one of the highlights of my time thus far in Canada; whilst exploring a path from a rather splendid B&B (Shambhala, in Buckhorn), I found this bear just strolling towards me. After contemplating me for a few moments (and kindly refraining from eating me), it wandered off into the bushes; just enough time to get a few photographs.

I love the fact that you have things like this wandering around the woods of Canada.

I rather identify with this bear: the poor thing is being roundly eaten by mosquitoes – the little b*ggers were being especially troublesome during our visit – the dragonflies etc that would normally thin the numbers out a bit had yet to hatch from their larval forms.
