turning over a new rock

black bear


A yearling bear and I startled each other the day before yesterday as I was walking down the road and it was lying in the stream to beat the heat. For once, I prioritized wildlife watching over photographic documentation, so here instead is a photo of a rock flipped by a bear looking for edible larvae and other invertebrates.

It was sheer serendipity that a new(ish) leaf happened to be in just the right spot in the photo!
