My camera has a good zoom function! Don't worry, I'm not foolish enough to think "awww, wook at da cute little teady bear!" and try and get close. That reminds me! At a ranger station where we stopped to get info before going on a trail, they had a board where you could write what you'd seen that day, so other people knew what to expect on the trail. People had written on each trail "black bear at 9 a.m." etc. Well, one person managed to write "female moose and cub". Hmmmm. I was laughing, trying to decide if she meant to write "and calf" or if there really was a moose wandering around with a bear cub!!
