Have You Seen This Black Bear Selfie Queen? Hundreds Of Wild Bear Selfies For Your Sunday!

“Right Back At Ya!”

Yes, this is a wild black bear giving you a raspberry – tongue stuck straight out!

It’s all part of a terrific story that TheGuardian.com just shared – wildlife officials found these selfie photos on a camera left out in the wilderness to monitor wild animal activity – and they that and more!

“Get Ready For Your Closeup!”

The Officials decided to share these hilariously candid photos that one very “camera loving” black bear posed for – and posed and posed and posed!

As The Guardian reports:

“In this instance, a bear took a special interest in one of our wildlife cameras and took the opportunity to capture hundreds of ‘selfies’,” an open space and mountain parks spokesperson, Phillip Yates, told NBC in a statement this week.

“These pictures made us laugh, and we thought others would, too,” Yates added.

The bear can be seen from a number of angles, full face staring into the lens, just a paw, tongue out, a backside walking away and various other shots.

The department uses images recorded by the cameras to map wildlife habits and habitat, and to monitor land use and protection needs for wilderness areas.

Well, in this case they got so much more!

So, just how “camera hungry” was this bear?

The officials found more than FOUR HUNDRED selfies on the device, which is located near Boulder, Colorado!

I love this bear and this story – which reminded me that Officials also discovered that during the pandemic, bears made a dramatic return!

This surge in numbers was due, they think, to the dramatic falloff in tourism during the pandemic…see the story here:

And while we are on wild bears, remember the “Fat Bear” contest?

This live competition actually helps raise money to support wildlife – see this heartwarming story here:

As for wildlife encounters, remember when I was in Malibu and had a fun Dolphin encounter as well:

It had me wondering:

How do they sleep?

I also discovered that wild Elk are plentiful and unafraid when I visited Washington’s Olympic peninsula – check this out:

Literally hundreds rammed the streets of the small town of Brinnon – here’s that story:
