Morning Visitor

Happy Saturday Everyone,


This is not about knitting or crochet, but every once
in awhile, something unusual happens and I just
have to tell you about it.

I was rushing out for an early morning appointment.
I had just had an e-mail exchange with my friend Prudence
Mapstone http://knotjustknitting.com
(Who, by the way, is glob-trotting again) and was
running late.  I was stopped in my tracks by
an unwelcome early morning visitor.  A bear was
leisurely walking across my yard.  My first instinct
was to run back into the house, then I grabbed my camera.



He was heading straight for my garbage pail, good
thing collection happened minutes before he arrived.




I was quite far away, but finally remembered to use
the zoom!



Wonder if anything good is left in there?



Well, I'll give it a try.

I made some noise by slamming my door and he
finally wandered off.  I ran for my car and was out
of there in seconds "-)

Enough adventure for one day!

Have a great weekend,

Margaret

We had a bear in the neighborhood last year, but never in the front yard (that I know of!) -- your photos are amazing!

Good thing he wasn't smaller!  Then you'd have MOM around somewhere too!  Like Dee says - the pictures are amazing!
