Get the Heck Outta' my Habitat!

In the Spirit of Silly Tuesday...

The Ravens often steal food and annoy the grizzly bears in the West Yellowstone Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center - a Not-for-Profit Wildlife Educational Facility that houses animals that cannot be released into the wild.

Awesome shot! I just love the expression you captured on the bear's face. I'm assuming you were in your car when you shot this. I think I would've been. ;-)

@Jason Politte: Not in the car, but the bear was behind a fence at the Grizzly Center. I did get very close to one in the wild, but not THIS close!

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

My money is on the bear!!! Super capture for a Silly Tuesday Barbara! ;-)))

Good evening, Mrs. Thomas
I'm curious about what topic to talk the two. The bear seems to be a bit confused. The facial expression is so. An interesting photo that I like. Ranger is a bit sick. A gland in his neck, is slightly swollen. Nevertheless, he feels fit and is excited about our walks and playing with other dogs. He is delighted that I'm back home.
Have a nice time, all the best and health. Dear greetings from Christel

That bear almost has a human-like face! Never seen one that close up! But he is sure looking at the raven like he'd like to swallow it ;) Great capture, Barbara!

That's one funny, dumbfounded look on the Teddy. And Ravens are such mysterious and smart birds. Fun shot Barbara.
