The second Black Bear I came across in the Chiricahuas on Tuesday was standing beneath a tree. I don't think he saw me at first. He climbed up the tree and started eating the berries. I came much closer and watched him (from a distance of about 20 feet). After about ten minutes a large truck came streaking by and scared the bear out of the tree. I could see him further into the woods but he decided to cross Cave Creek and up the other side. I followed down to the creek where I got a nice photo of one of his foot prints.
