Grin and Bear It – Buffing Up a Bruin

The Cameron Park Zoo in Waco, Texas, has an interesting black bear habitat. On the day I visited, there was an enormous number of wild black vultures hanging out with the bears. Apparently the bears don't mind the vultures and pay little attention to them. You can see one of the vultures in this photo.

I really like the expression on this bear's face, so I chose to process this image into a close-up.
