Black Bear

black bear

Our warm weather has brought out the black bears looking wondering and looking for food. Today is the third time I have seen this bear and he or she is always head up the mountain away from our home. I was lucky enough to get a picture today, beautiful bear!


Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. oooo, that’s a big one Michael—do be careful—I do love seeing these animals. And know that I appreciate your prayers for Brenton—I’ll e-mail you letting you know how things go…
    Blessings to you and a happy mother’s day to your wife–Julie

    • My guess is that it weight between 200 to 200 lbs. I was on the side of the house watering my hydrangeas and heard something thinking it might be deer. When I walk to the driveway and looked up there he was. I ran to get my camera which was on the foyer table. I got lucky and got one good shot, the others are blurry.

      I am sure Brenton’s surgery will go well, it’s after the surgery, getting his bladder going again, etc.

      Happy Mother’s Day to you!

  2. Absolutely great. But isn´t that quite dangerous? The only time in my life I saw bears was in the zoo, when I was little. Have a lovely weekend, too!

    • Yes, it can be but generally black bears are afraid of humans unless a mother bear has cubs and feels threaten. I was about 150 feet from this bear but he seemed in a hurry, good for me! 🙂

  3. A beauty! Great shot – hope you weren’t as near as it looks from the photo… Have a great weekend too Michael, and take care!

    • Hi Uta, we have a few black bears that hang around the mountain all the time but I have seen this one 3 times now! 🙂

      Thank you for visiting my site, I am headed to visit your site now! 🙂

    • Yes, I figure he or she weighs in the neighborhood of 250-300 lbs. Each time he has traveled in the same trail up and down the mountain from our creek. I found tracks all along the creek bed. We keep our trash cart and everything inside the garage, learned this the hard way many years ago when the raccoons got into the trash cart. I was picking up trash for a week.
