paw print Black Bears in June

I've been out in the woods snapping lots of black bear photos.
I think my photography is improving based on the amount of mosquito bites, brush scratches, and poison ivy I have (itch-itch-scratch-scratch.)

Red Riding Hood has 3 new cubs this year, Ronny, Rocky & Ralphy.
I still haven't managed to capture a decent photo of Red and all 3 of her kidlets together. The cubs never stay still long enough!

Perhaps I'll get a decent photo of Red and her family after I stink less of Eau De Calmine Lotion.

That little one on the left side of photo #2 is just terrific!

Equil, that's almost like a Joey in a mama's pouch! I've always been intrigued by trees growing in trees. It just demonstrates the persistence of life. Like flowers on rocks.

A prego tree. Sucking sap from its mama...
Booboo your babies are so precious. Love those little hairy bear lips.

Thank you.

I'm going to collect more seeds this year so I can spread the Penstemon digitalis--I'd love to have drifts of it. ...And drifts of other flowers too--like Ascelpias tuberosa (butteflyweed).

Way cool markings on that one cub. It's like he's the zoro of bears. How's it feel to be directly responsible for all that life? It'd give me warm fuzzies.

E-
I get warm fuzzies just watching the wildlife! Any wildlife (critters, birds, bees, butterflies, etc.) I'm not sure that I'm responsbile for the wildlife in our forest, but I do encourage it with native plantings and such. Also, I don't phone the DNR everytime I see a black bear. In other words, I think it's great that the black bears chose to live in our forest.

Aww... that is so sweet. I didn't quite think of it that way until you just stated it. If she hadn't raised those cubs, there'd be no 'grandcubs'. ~smile~
