A Morning Visitor

This black bear crossed through our yard on its way to our neighbor’s home. She put’s out bird feeders during the day. Bringing the feeders in at night is usually a safe bet, but not today. This black bear hung around for a while and attracted a few viewers.

    Yikes–he’s huge! And he took down the bird feeder! The bears come out at night in the county over from me–luckily not in my area. Great photos.

    It really surprises me that these bears really dare to penetrate into the inhabited areas…. the time when they were shy is also over. Doesn’t this pose a danger to the local residents, I assume that these bears do pose some danger.

      There is some danger. People are encouraged not to put out feeders and to lock up their trash. If bears become too used to humans, they become a threat. That seldom ends well.

      Smiles and waves back. I’d love to feel his fur but think it unwise. This (with a long lens) was as close as I dared get. It creeps me out when they look at me.
