Bear In the Tater Patch

American black bear, in my potato patch

It stopped raining yesterday afternoon, and this fellow came up out of the brush to see what he could see. This always gets me pretty excited, and for the next week or so, every dark shadow and tree trunk is going to look like a bear to me. He left a few tracks in the potato patch, but nothing photograph-worthy.

I've mistaken Black Angus cows for bears before, usually at dusk, in my excitement about seeing one...nice shot. I grew up in Rockbridge County, VA, so your blog is a very special treat to read, and to gaze at. Congrats on your 3rd place ribbon for the Maury River Fiddlers'!

Thanks for visiting, especially from such a great distance! Rockbridge County is lovely.
