Big Bend 097

This was the largest bear I saw during my research. I had been watching it for a while while it lazily grazed on acorns while laying under an oak tree. The bear would eat all of the acorns within reach, and then get up, turn around, and lay back down so it could get more acorns. I enjoyed watching this bear for a while until hikers, coming back up the trail, scared the bear by talking (they did not know the bear was near until they saw the bear get up and run away). This is when the bear got, what would be termed in human activity, a head rush. The bear suddenly stopped in mid-stride and slowly sat down. The bear then casually walked away, presumably after the dizzy feeling went away.
