Meet Ted Day3
While the wind finally has calmed down, the clouds have thickened up and sprinkles came and went today.
At first, I didn’t think much of Ted. Though a big male, he was on the other side of the falls, the furthest he could be from us and didn’t do much. I mean, this is how we saw him most of the day. Just staring off into the pool.
And if he wasn’t staring off into the pool, he was like this, his head under the water. The longest time he had his head under that I saw and counted was 21sec. Was he a successful fisherbear using this style? Yeah, he caught salmon but they weren’t really big ones and he didn’t catch them that often. For such a big bear, I wondered about him. He has one big ass scare on his rear flank. I wondered if that hampered his mobility at all which is why he had the particular fishing approach. Hope he’s around tomorrow though, he’s a great looking bear and if he comes closer, he will be fun to photograph!
