Here is a shot of a black bear lumbering through the woods. Often it is difficult to get a good look at a black bear, they are extremely elusive characters, with a great sense of smell and a unique sense of natural wariness. Although black bear are often considered the 'clown of the woods', due to their seemingly lumbering and bumbling ways, they have the ability to accelerate to over 35 mph in an instant, and they can disappear by blending into the forest even faster.
