Bears and bear corn

young black bear foraging on bear corn
Check out my gardening companion's post about bears and Conopholis (Bear Corn or Squawroot) on a recent field trip to the Smokies.  This young black bear was yumming up fruits of bear corn for almost a hour (and holding up hikers in the process).

evidence of a forager!
These are a couple of additional photos that he didn't post.

Woody and I have been holding down 'the fort' at home, here in the Piedmont or in the mountains, but we're glad he's off having adventures, too.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
