We interrupt our regularly scheduled New Orleans entry ...

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey

... for a mid-afternoon bear visit. I was chatting away on the phone to my Mom and looked out into the back yard. I saw a large black bear walking around. I quickly counted the dogs—yup, all four were in the house accounted for—hung up the phone, yelled to Rick to please bring me my camera, and managed to get a few quick shots.

At first I assumed it was Ursa without her cubs, but when I pointed the camera at her I got the impression it was not her. Don’t ask me why, but like I’ve said before, Ursa and I kind of have a ‘thing.’ This bear’s face was somehow different than Ursa’s. I know for sure it wasn’t Doris. I think this was a different bear. Beautiful face though, heh?

This pic isn’t very good, but if you look closely you’ll see the bear exiting our yard via the chain link fence, and she has it pulled down sort of standing on it!

Oh Lynne,

I think you are going to be the Bear Whisperer!
They are something! Altough I’m glad she didn’t stick around too long.

Your bear visit photo ops never cease to amaze me.  What an adventure to have such friends!
