Dextrous

When I’m out watching bears I love seeing how they work and use their paws so well. It’s amazing how they can be so dextrous with something that looks so bulky and clumsy to us. Often I see them swiping swathes of grass in to their mouths with just a simple looking wave of their paw or turning logs and rocks over, such as here, searching for small crustaceans and food underneath. Sometimes they just push a large boulder aside with very little effort, take a quick glance underneath and then move on to the next one. This grizzly bear is a yearling and he clearly knows how and where to look to find the slightest morsel for his breakfast, but just look at his fingers and claws and how they are holding that rock up.
