Another Bear in the Woods / by Ed Shanahan

Last week I made my final "fall foliage" trip of the year to Shenandoah National Park.  This park is an amazing gem not far from our nation's capital.  The leaves were a little past peak whereas just a few days prior they were not even close to full bloom.  While I was up there I saw this guy appx 100' off the road and took a few photos while he munched on the vegetation.  I asked Facebook friends and followers which photo they liked best.  This was their choice.   1/320s, f5.6, ISO 1000, cropped and adjusted in post processing.
