Black Bear at the Bird Feeder (6 images)
7 months ago

This is the seventh hit this year -- four in a week when he first came out in early spring, two in early June, and then yesterday at twilight.  This was the first siting by us this year.  We saw him enter driveway from woods in front of house and we knew he was going around back to hit the feeders.  Ran to get my K3.  Had the Pentax 55 on the camera and I ran around back to the deck.  Set the camera at f2.0 (because of the low light) and tried a variety of slow speeds.  The six images that follow are the best of the lot -- in fact my best bear pictures ever.  They start with him pushing over the feeder, continue with him looking at the seed and feeders, and end with him carrying one feeder into the woods behind my house.

Great fun

John
