Black Bear at Banff

Look what appeared at the side of the Bow Valley Parkway in Banff.
I was lucky enough to see a Grizzly last year in Yellowstone but this was my first Black Bear. It was quite interested in having its photograph taken as you can see.

Good lord Gayle! I hope it was a very long zoom lens! Black bears can be unpredictable.

It is a long zoom and I kept well away.
