So, yesterday morning, I’m at the dining room table working on the computer when I look up to see this guy/gal strolling up the lane.
I’m really sorry the photos are so blurry, but I’m still trying to figure out my new smartphone. I used the telephoto, but I was shaking with excitement so I didn’t get any clear shots.
After walking a few yards up our lane, the bear headed around the fire lane and started toward the back of the house.
From his/her size it looks to be a young bear.
Out here in the Columbia River Gorge, we do live in bear country. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing a rather large male black bear, and a mom with her two cubs, but I’ve not been able to capture on camera.
