Mama Bear sniffing the air. This is not at all a sign of aggression like a lot of people think it is. When watching Bears they will often raise their head and swing it back and forth. What they are doing is trying to pick up your scent. They can tell so much about whether or not you are a threat etc by your scent. The sense of smell is a Bear's strongest sense. They have a sense of smell 2,100 times better than humans!
