Great set--I especially like how the first shot sets the scene. (FWIW, our black bears are notorious for breaking off branches of our scrubby fire cherry trees...so much so that the Park Service closed some trails last week on account of "raining bears.")

Holy cow! I didn't know bears could ascend to those heights! What great catches.

Thank you for the kind words, with a very late Spring this year the bears seemed to make up for lost time, I had never seen this many in that area.

Hi Jer and thank you, it always amazes me how quick they can climb up and come down.

Thank you Dave, last year I watched mama bear come down out of a tree when she figured the young one was in danger, a sight to behold.

Hi Tony and thank you. No big secret, one just has to be out there and keep ones eyes open.

I've been waiting for our local beech trees to fill up with nuts so the bears behave like this. It's supposed to happen every 7 years and we've been here 6, maybe this year. Anyway, thanks for showing me what I'm waiting for.

Thank you Norm and here is hoping that your beach trees won't let you down.
