Bear Attack!

It was one year ago that we awakened to the after effects of a bear attack on our bird feeders.  Last year I wished that I had got a photograph of the bear(s) that attacked our bird feeders.  Be careful what you wish for because wishes do come true …

Bob awakened earlier than me this morning.  This is nothing out of the ordinary.  Bob always awakens earlier than me.  What was out of the ordinary was Bob racing into the bedroom, like a crazed man.  “Look out the window!”   I raise myself up and with eyes barely open, I look out the tiny opening in the blind that Bob has opened for me to see outside.  I think I said something like “nice sunrise”, not really seeing anything because my eyes are still not quite open.  Bob is still excited and asks “do you see them?”  “See what?”  “Bears!”.  My eyes snap open.  There are bears, three of them, in our back yard!  Oh boy, did I get up out of that bed fast.  I grabbed my camera, turned it on.  Oh crap!  No media card.  I find a media card in my camera bag; insert it.   While Bob is in the kitchen, capturing video, I am in the bathroom taking pictures … my very first pictures of bears, not caged in a zoo!

We saw two baby cubs

and

Mama Bear!

Wow! Look at that mama bear!

One of the baby bears liked my lighthouse feeder.

The baby bear carried my lighthouse feeder to the edge of our backyard.

Baby bear didn’t carry the lighthouse bird feeder much farther than here.

Earlier I mentioned that Bob was in the kitchen taking video, while I was taking pictures in the bathroom.  Here’s Bob’s video.

I guess we will be bringing in our bird feeders from now on.
