"A" is for....ABC Wednesday!!!

It's a a A A a  Bear!!!!

Ok...So I know I'm jumping the gun here...
but this is my first bear sighting of the year...
and the first bear sighting up here for the granddaughters!!!
Fortunately...Granddaughter Kieley got the pics with her Droid phone...
Did I mention we have identical Droid phones...including case???

There were actually two bears up the tree...this little one, and a big mama bear...up higher...
It's absolutely Amazing just how high these big ol' bears can climb!!!


  1. Is that a Grizzly? With a cub?

    I don't think I'd have even stayed around long enough to take a picture. :-)

  2. I guess I *had* to ask about bears at the picnic last week...and bingo, here one is!

  3. Just a couple of California Black Grizzlies in the Sierras Wayne!!! We were there with Steve..."The Bear Whisperer" and he assured us we were all safe as we aren't part of their food chain!!! (The Bear Whisperer is a show on the Animal Planet channel...featuring Steve Searles and the Mammoth Black Bears...if you happen to run across it...check it's good tv!!!)

    Ask, and ye shall receive Trish!!!

  4. Wow. Now the only kind of bears I ever see in my part of the world are the 'teddy' variety; thank you for showing your images. x

  5. One of the perks of living in Mammoth, California!!! Where are you from Elizabeth?

  6. I've seen bears in Banff and in Tweedsmuir Park in BC. But I do know not to get between Mama and Baby! Great shots.
