The Black Bears Are Here!

Well, it’s official.  Time to take the bird feeders down until later this year.  The first black bear of the season has made an appearance in my yard today.  I was preparing a cup of tea in my kitchen and, as is my habit, glanced out the window to see what sorts of birds might be around when I saw this bear munching on new grass.  I stayed on the porch to take the photo where I wouldn’t bother it from foraging for food.  I’d be hungry too if fresh out of the den from a long winter.  Who am I kidding…I’m hungry in the morning after just a single night!  It did pause to watch me for a moment before continuing to eat and otherwise ignore my presence.  Watching it, the phrase, “It’s good to be king” came to mind…gives me an idea for a painting.
