A bear encounter

Twice this fall we have been fortunate to see bears in their natural habitat. The second encounter happend on a sunny afternoon, when we were driving around on small forest roads hoping to see some elks (mooses) to shoot (with the camera, i.e).

Suddenly Roffe stopped the car, rolled down the car window and pointed at a sunlit stone some 40, 50 meters away on a clearcut.

-Look at that stone over there, he said. Doesn’t it look weird, or is it just the sunlight playing tricks on us? 1 The stone

 

Suddenly the “stone” began to move and we could see the outline of a bear. 2 The stone moves

We were both ready with our cameras in the lap and Roffe’s clicking the camera, as if it was an AK-4, immediately alerted the bear.

OMG, not ’em damned paparazzis again! Why can’t they leave me alone.

 

5 Bear half length

OK, just this once. What do you prefer, half length…

 

6 Bear full length

….or full length?

A close up, perhaps?

Or maybe you find my smiling side view more attractive?

 

9 Time to leave

OK, enough is enough, I have to carry on. It is time to find myself a hibernation for the winter.

Well, we just wonder how many such “stones” we have have passed throughout the years while walking or hiking the woods and wetlands searching for berries and fungis.
