I was driving to another community in the Northwest Territories on Saturday when I saw this young bear. She (or he) was completely unfazed by my presence and idling engine. After a cursory look, she returned to eating some sort of tasty plant.
I wanted to get a better picture but I wasn’t going to get out of my truck to do that. Bears can run fast and have really big teeth. So, I was reduced to reaching across from the driver’s side to get these shots with my cell phone. This the sixth bear that I’ve seen since the beginning of May.
On the way back, it was drizzling. Since the air is now warmer than the ground or any body of water – thanks to our almost 24 hours of daylight – the formation of fog is very common. There was quite a layer of it above Little Buffalo River.
The fog produced some very moody scenes.
It has suddenly become very warm here with temperatures around 25C. This will increase to about 30C as the period of the midnight sun increases to its zenith. Then everything will start to cool once more and the bears will be looking for a place to sleep …

Well, I’m happy you didn’t get out of your truck for us, Lynette! Great photos!
Thank you very much, Jill. 🙂 Nope, I wasn’t going to get out although it’s amazing to see tourists doing that – people sometimes don’t realise how risky their behaviour is.
Btw, I sent you an email. 🙂
Some people have no sense. 🙂 I didn’t receive your email. Did you send it to firstname.lastname@example.org?
No – I sent it to email@example.com. I will send again. 🙂
That’s not my email address, Lynette.
Yes – what I meant is that I’ll send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. (I had a long day yesterday – that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. 🙂
You might want to send it again. I haven’t received anything from you at that address.
