Slideshow: Maine Black Bears


Magnificent Maine black bears captured by photographer Paul Cyr.

In our March issue, writer Ron Joseph explores  the natural wonder of black bear hibernation. Photographer Paul Cyr captured the accompanying (and adorable) images of black bear cubs emerging into the world in spring. Here, we share more of Cyr’s black bear photography in an exclusive, online-only slideshow.


Paul Cyr is a freelance photographer based in Aroostook County.
