In Juneau, Alaska, we took a trip on a float plane to a lodge in a National Park where the rangers cooked us freshly caught salmon on a bar-b-que. While eating, we noticed a black bear wander up to the bar-b-que plate where he stood up and started to lick the plate. We all jumped up to take pictures including Diane who took these two. We were about 5m away from it.
It's not the 'chef' although it looks like it.
The bear had enough and wandered off into the woods.
During the encounter, the ranger was staying with us with a long stick. Just in case.
