Whatever Wednesday:Beary Tale

I went to see the Kokanee Salmon that are migrating upstream right now in South Lake Tahoe last Friday. I was hoping to see a bear since I just got butt shots of one the last time I went to see this migration back in 2010.

We saw salmon schools and some swimming around the creek, but no bears while we were there so, we went to look for fall color, have lunch, and return for the late afternoon, early evening and maybe see a bear come to the creek to eat.

We got lucky and a young black bear did come by to eat! It got really exciting for several seconds when the bear wanted to get up on the deck I and quite a few observers were on and cross to the other side.  This is how close I was. Right at the very edge of my focusing limit…too close! I and everyone else backed up and the bear hopped up on the bridge and I was still too close so we backed up more and the bear walked across the bridge and into the woods.

It looked like it was heading back to the creek but near the other bridge so, I made for that and sure enough, the bear went up on a huge beaver dam and started hunting for something to eat.  It didn’t fish. I wonder if it didn’t learn that skill?

That’s my bear tale.  It was pretty exciting and neat seeing it.

I hope you’re all having a lovely week!

This image is from some months back when I first discovered the Nevada Wild Mustangs.

It also made me laugh out loud when I got home and uploaded my images to discover this Cowbird landing on the back of this Mustang looking as if it’s ready to ride, grab some mane and say giddy up! 😂

I hope you’ve had something to laugh out loud about this week. It’s good medicine; laughter. I hope this makes you smile at least! Happy Hump Day Y’all!
