Sidelong Glance

Sidelong Glances are common while photographing Black Bears (or Grizzly Bears), whether they are watching us, or in this case the salmon, their eyes are constantly scanning. Bears have a very good sense of sight, and it’s thought to be as good as humans at close distances. Also, similar to humans (well those with good eyesight, anyway) bears are able to accurately judge distances of the things they see.

 

When watching Bears fishing, it is amazing to see them key-in on a fish that was a few meters (or maybe more) away, and how they are able to pounce on it and have it for their next meal.
