I believe I mentioned once that because I live in such a remote area I often get the "unexpected" visitors,( in reference to a snake I posted a photo of ), yesterday however right around dusk I had quite the unexpected visitor right at the steps leading off my front deck. I had just stepped inside with my dogs, got myself a cold soda, and was half reading the local newspaper when I heard my dog going crazy at the front door. I approached the door, expecting to find a person or perhaps a squirrel or stray cat, imagine my surprise to see a black bear approaching the deck! Just sauntering toward us like he had no worries! I saw that he was focused on a half eaten bowl of dog food still on my deck! I was shocked to put it mildly, especially realising I had just been out there less than 15 minutes earlier! Well in all of the chaos and excitement, I grabbed my camera, and attempted to get a picture of it! Needless to say I was too afraid to step outside to capture the moment, and I blew what would have been possibly the most exciting Kodak moment of my life! =[ Due to my trembling hands, bad lighting and the fact that I took it through a window screen I only managed to capture this pic which I titled "Bearly Scene"! I did however manage a decent photo of his tracks, after I was sure he had gone back to his rightful place in the mountains!
