“Food Chain”

In honor of Squirrel Appreciation Day, I’d like to share a work in progress. This year, I’m donating an original watercolor to the SCLC Lumberjack Banquet & Education Auction They raise funds for much-needed resource education programs.

I’ll keep you posted on the progress.


Wild Wednesday … The Burr Bear

Tim and I see quite a few black bear while out and about. This young sow (see her ear to head ratio and shape of her face) was covered in burrs.


Mary and I were driving into camp last summer and were approaching a little creek. As we rounded a bend in the road, this bear burst out of the blackberry bushes. It ran across the road in front of us and stopped in the blackberries about 30 feet away. I stopped the truck. It stared at us and we stared back. It appeared to be a young bear. It stayed there for a good 3 or 4 minutes while we took pictures. This bear was covered in burrs. unfortunately, that comes with this territory. black bear, bear, wildlife, photographyWild black bears usually run, but this one didn’t. Maybe, being a young bear it was curious. We’ve seen that before, “Curious Young Bear.”  We also suspected that it might be a sow and she had a cub that was still below the road. Perhaps, she wasn’t leaving her baby.

Everyone needs a hug now and then. Tasha and one of her 2-day-old puppies. Too cute.
