We had turned around in the Lamar Valley and saw a car pulled over to the side of the road. Of course we stopped. There was a bear in the pond.
The bear was swimming after two ducks. We had to stop and take pictures. I don't usually put so many pictures in one post but this time I have to do it. They are worth enlarging as well.
The bear is very intent.
The ducks are not too concerned.
They can take off at any time and fly away, but only go a few feet. Amazing.
The bear accepts the challenge.
He really wants a duck!
He's leaping like a fish. Maybe he thinks he's fooling those fowls.
No, they just take off again.
The bear is either tired or frustrated, but eventually gives up.
He thinks he's going to get out and go up the hill, but....
wait a minute!
What are all those people doing over there? Did they watch me?
Oh, how embarrassing.
Can I go this way?
"You can't duplicate that!" is what a Yellowstone guide said after we all watched this in awe. For more cute critters and stories, check out Camera Critters here!
