    If you have any more that show the feet-paws, I would enjoy seeing them. Thanks

    Geez, Maybe put up a sign for Trespassers - Beware of Guard Bears ! I bet any trespasser seeing that "gang" would seriously reconsider the idea of being there ! The real question is why are they there ? Is something attracting them or is something forcing them to be so close ?

    We took down our bird feeder at least three weeks ago. And, there is nothing in the garden right now besides some asparagus and rhubarb.

    We live in the middle of 40 acres of woods. Our nearest neighbor is about 3/8 mile from us. Across the county road from our 40 acres is a State Game Refuge. On one side of the 40 is a wetland and on the other side is barbwire fence. So, our yard is a corridor for wildlife traveling in and out of the refuge. We see deer everyday, we see several bear every spring, we've seen at least four timber wolves, and an occasional badger, porcupine, gray fox, and fisher. We're still waiting to see our first lynx, bobcat, and/or cougar in the yard.

    Great shots - thanks for sharing!

    We have Black Bear around here but have never seen more than one by itself. And it’s usually just after dusk and can’t get any good pics.

    Is the cinnamon one a different species or just colored differently?

    And I love how you described your place - my dream to be in the middle of the woods like that. My 6 acres are OK being I can’t see any neighbors but I have the feeling of wanting more space (land) lately.

    How thrilling to see so many together. I thought that only happened in Alaska while fishing for Salmon.
    Up the mountain from where I used to live, they were pretty destructive as the flatlanders up for the summer would think it was cute to leave food/garbage around for them.

    Neat to see! Do they ever try to break into your house?
