What could have turned into a dangerous event, actually became a rather comedic one, as a black bear attempted to take over a nature photo session, lead by photographer Dean Schwartz. Here’s the full story:

Run is probably what most people would have done in this situation, but the unusual behavior of the bear kept Dean Schwartz close by to document the bear’s curiosity. In a similar situation, it might be better to always have in mind the “run away plan” — one never knows when this kind of luck is on your side. Bears are indeed very intelligent creatures, but no doubt that this one is way smarter than the average ones.
