Same bear, similar itch, different tree

The Black bear that I photographed doing a bit of a dance while rubbing against a small tree continued on its path through the trees for a while before crossing the highway.  It was early in the morning so no traffic interrupted him as he sauntered down the middle of the road for a couple of hundred metres.

Crossing a thin tree line, he grazed on spring flowers amid the tall grass while heading parallel to the road.

A while after that, he wandered close to the Athabasca River and grazed near the shoreline and even laid down for a short nap on a grassy spot.

A few minutes later, he moved into the trees and finding a new scratching post to rub against for a little while.
