Bears & Honey (2 photos)

We have four bears, three adults and a cub, frequenting our acreage this year and on my walk through the woods today I found five different spots just off the trail where bears have been digging up bee/wasp nests. As the salmon berries wane and the blackberries just start to form, the bears turn to insects and honey to augment their diet. It must be quite uncomfortable digging up wasp nest but I guess the sweet honey is hard to resist.
