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.
How gorgeous!! These are so wonderful! It is brilliant to see such majestic creatures in their own land and space, doing their own thing 🙂 So brilliant 😀

That really looks like a satisfying scratch.

Great photos , and it is nice to see the same bear again. I hope he gets some relief for that itch.
