Did Fisher Smell the Bear?

Some scout camera photos—thanks to the phenomenon of "digital lag," they were cropped in the camera.

Here is the little bear from May 22nd again, same location on "the hidden trail," on the afternoon of Monday, May 30th.

And when I decided to bring down the camera yesterday, June 4th, Fisher ran ahead and got himself photographed in the same spot. After five days of dry weather, would he have smelled the bear? It almost looks like he is is pondering something.

Having worked scent-detecting dogs and also smelled bears in the woods, in a word, yes.

Heather, I agree with you, but by the time I caught up to him, Fisher's attention was already elsewhere!
