I just discovered this thread today...and made it all the way through. When I got to the end I realized there is reply after reply all posted by me! Oops! I really enjoyed spending time on this thread this evening--even though I realize I'm avoiding work. At first it was just a break but now, I'd best go back to preparing for my assignment.

Thank you all. It will be a tough decision! ...By the way, if you view this thread in hybrid mode instead of linear, I don't look as much like a post hog!

It's been an interesting month of May in the bear world.
Warmer spring temps brought the bear herd out of hibernation early this year.

Here are some of my favorite bear shots from this past month.

Flora, 3 year old male black bear (raised and reared by moi.) Still recognizes me as his mum.

Red Riding Hood and 1 of her 3 new cubs, Ralphie.

BigBear, 4 or 5 year old male bear. Has already been courting available female black bears in our woods.
Usually the mating game doesn't begin here until well into the month of June.

I am more than impressed with the images I have seen for this contest. Images that give me the oportunity to remember why I got so in love with north america all times I have been there.

Thanks to all for sharing those pieces of your country with me.

Becky, it still amazes me that you raised those cubs. ...so cool that he remembers you.

The pic of Red and Ralphie is *adorable*.

Cool...I started thinking I was monopolizing the thread.

Thanks, I didn't know I had a sharp wit. I still remember when I was little and was telling a joke, my brother told me I should grow up to be a comedian. I was pretty young and had to ask, "What is a comedian?"

I got excited when I found out what it was...until he had to tell me he was being sarcastic. Of course, I had to ask what *that* meant. After that, I think I've always questioned my sense of humor somewhere in the back of my mind.

Canadian tiger swallowtail (Papilio canadensis), closely related to the eastern tiger swallowtail more familiar to most people.

Thanks! It's actually on a non-native but non-invasive, hybrid Spiraea. I guess since the genus is found here, some of the pollinators are still able to make use of it.
