An Unexpected Guest

We had my mother-in-law up for Labor Day hamburgers last night. We had all settled in to eat when my husband said, "Look coming there!"

I was expecting my nephew at the back door or something, but no. Instead I saw a bear!

He was not a big bear, as bears go, but big enough! He sniffed around the back door and then headed around the house, circling around to the front yard and then moseying on into the hollow.

You just never know what you're going to see around here.

This bear is missing half of its front paw.

Bear Video

This is a video of a couple of bears in a local cornfield. Watch one bear run off with an ear of corn while a smaller bear knocks over corn stalks to reach the goodies.

I took these pictures Saturday night at a location near the foot of Caldwell Mountain.

Thursday Thirteen

What Happens at the Trash Can

A squirrel.


Three raccoons!


A Bear! A Bear!

Bear make big mess.

A groundhog.

Big fat groundhog.

A bear! Too bad the camera apparently slipped.

Bear Butt.

Now we know why there is a mess in the morning.

Having a feast.

Winding it up and going away.

Now to figure out how to keep the animals out of the trash!


Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here if you want to read other Thursday Thirteens and/or play along. I've been playing for a while and this is my 449th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.

Bear on the Trail Camera

I was incredibly excited when we downloaded the photos off the trail cam yesterday and these pictures of a bear were on there. This is a fairly big bear, too.

When the trail cams pick up animals other than deer, I am always happy. My husband is only interested in bucks, but I find most of the pictures interesting.

Early Morning Visitor

Too dark for the camera and I was too shaky to get good shots, darn it, but we had a bear in the back yard this morning!

Yee hah!

Cute little thing, too!

Bear on the Farm

My nephew was bow hunting Saturday evening and found himself treed by a couple of bears.

A big bear came out and then later he saw two cubs. He took this photo of one of the cubs with his cell phone. He gave me permission to put it on my blog.

I was very jealous because I've been wanting to see a bear. I will have to settle for the photo  - for now. (He did not shoot the bears.)

Fuzzy Wuzzy

Regular readers may remember that about a month ago, I wrote an entry with photos of a mysterious critter that I thought might be a bear.

I'm happy to say that mystery has been solved:

That is a BEAR running through the alfalfa field!

I shot these pictures about 8:45 a.m. this morning (6/22/09. My mother-in-law called me and told me to get my camera and head to the hayfield and so I did.

She called it a cub but I don't think this is a cub. This is a full grown, if small bear.

It ventured across the road while I was shooting pictures so I hopped in the car to make sure I could stop traffic to keep it from getting hit. I felt protective since I am pretty sure my presence is the reason it ran across the street.

It vanished into the woods in front my house and I've not seen it again. I suspect it is still in the woods, though, hunkered down.
