'Bear' With Me...

I was walking out back behind
the house a few days ago...

I had a 'oh no' moment.
Actually said the words out loud...
But in a whisper.

A Black Bear moving out of the brushes...

Black bears range in coloring from
 black to cinnamon...
But I digress...

He's moving to my right as I move
 backwards and to the left towards the house...

A far piece to walk oh so slow...

He's shedding his winter coat
in case your wondering why his fur is a mess.

One last look from him as he 
moved slowly away from me and 
back into the woods.



  1. I like bear :-) He looks like a 2 year old~ hansom fellow.

  2. Glad ur safe. I've been fighting raccoons..glad it's not bears.

  3. And you had the presence of mind to take pictures?!?!?!?!? You are a brace soul!!

  4. Oh my! What a surprise for both of you.

  5. Oh my! I'm so glad you made it back in to safety! Amazing pictures of your backyard adventure!

  6. scary! but here in Ga. we woke up to piles of bear scat one Sunday morning not long ago

  7. WOW!! And u took pics too!! But love watching animals mostly from the comfort of a chair at home. Deer, rabbits, squirrels, -- don't like what they do to the garden, but are totally safe. lol

  8. Thank you for sharing, and the foresight to have your phone/camera along just in case! Glad you both safely went your own ways.

  9. Love when you share your wildlife pics (and your quilts) but this one was scarey! Stay safe and well.

  10. Oh my goodness! Those are amazing photos and one scary moment. I'm so glad he walked away from you and all is well!

  11. Holy Cow! I would have had a heart attack! Great pictures!!!

  12. What happened to the bears fur. All matted up Must have got tangled in a bunch of bushes
