Still not caring that I was nearby, she rolled around in the shallow water playing with sunken sticks like they were bath toys.  She then lifted up her back feet, laid back and surveyed the lake.  A few moments passed before she decided bath time was over. She casually waded over to the shore, walked up the bank and instead of shaking the water off she just drip dried as she disappeared into the pine forest in search of more berries to eat.  Certainly the best few hours of black bear photography that I have had to date and an experience I won’t forget.
