Black Bear Summer, Alaska #0216


A young black bear in early summer in Interior Alaska. Most bears have shed their past winter coats by mid-summer, a necessity in the season of perpetual light. This bear still sports its winter coat somewhat bleached by summer sun. Black bears are more active at night when temperatures are cooler. In spring and summer, mosquitos and other biting insects plague all wildlife and a denser coat helps deflect the biting insects.  Wind helps abate the insect assault but there is no real escape until the first autumn frost knocks down the bugs.
