bear The "beauty pagent" bear

Flower, The "Beauty Pagent" Bear.

Here are photos of Flower at 8 months old. Taken last August. Flower's features were so much more delicate than her 3 brothers, hence I nicknamed her the beauty pagent bear. Flower's beauty is mesmerizing.
  • Flower, female orphan cub of Goldilocks.
  • Born as a quadruplet cub with 3 brothers, Forrest, Flora & Fern.

bear Forrest, "The Watcher" bear

Forrest, "The Watcher" bear

Photos of Forrest at 8 months old, the largest bear cub of the orphan quaduplets. His keen senses and instincts made him the watcher. He watched out for his siblings and alerted them (and me) to possible danger.

Forrest, male orphan cub of Goldilocks.
Born as a quadruplet cub with 2 brothers, Flora & Fern, and 1 sister, Flower

Nice crocosmia.
Black and white is always a nice treat tossed in.
Your blue jay looks like he's taking a swing at it.

that poor Jay was getting so mad, but he kept at it until he finally got it. Is that animal abuse? lol Jay's are smart and lots of fun to watch
