Midnight bears


You would think that any self-resecting bear would have bedded down for the season. But, no, despite it being mid-November and snowing, for a half hour around midnight last night, I was kept awake by two black bears foraging on rowan berries beside my home and even climbing from a tree onto the roof of my bedroom.

I chose to stay inside, judging that the difficulties and hazards of getting a good shot of a black bear at midnight were not worth the effort. However, I did discover that nighttime bears can be spooked by shining a spotlight through a window and into their faces.

The big fellow adjacent to my window could have been the twin of this earlier visitor.

    We have also been plagued by the midnight bears here in Ymir,both black and grizzly. We are all hoping that they go to bed soon!
