This past week I had a mishap with my old camera. I can not put a memory card into the proper place anymore. If I try to force the card I find difficulty removing it. What to do? I know …get a new camera which arrived yesterday, August 26.
Early this morning I took this new camera for a walk to get familiar with it, and learn more of the capabilities. I was walking a trail when I spotted black among the grasses. My immediate thought was a darkened stump. My second thought was a turkey soaked from the dew. Suddenly, the dark mass moved, and I realized I was witnessing a head of a black bear.
This bear began to walk only to be followed by a larger bear. The two bear were about 35 yards ahead of me. Needless to say I began taking photos! The two walked around a bend, and I followed! In short order I saw them again higher, and to my left. I backtracked hoping to catch sight of them on the back side of this hill.
WOW! The one bear showed up crossing twenty-seven steps from me. I was stunned, and the swiftness of these seconds did not allow for a photo! This time the bear bolted, and I could hear it moving down over the hill. I circled around failing to see either bear again.
