Recently I saw this Shenandoah National Park Black Bear Cub climbing down a tree after eating his share of wild grapes growing on the vines that were growing up along the tree.
In addition to up along trees, wild grape vines also grow on various other natural objects throughout the woods, such as this big rock. A few weeks ago while watching this young female bear she climbed down to this rock and started eating the grapes growing on the vines around the rock, giving me this photo opportunity.
Most all the Bears in Shenandoah have denned for the winter now and I sure will miss them until they emerge in April. I was up in the park last week and saw one family and that was my third ever December bear sighting in Shenandoah. I'll be back up to the park today but I'd be surprised if many, if any Bears, are still stirring around.
