Show & Tell: A Bear of a Week

July 14, 2008

I thought I’d post more cool pictures from work that were taken this week. These bears were caught on “candid camera”. We have motion sensitive cameras that take candid pictures of wildlife as they pass by. Sometimes bait, like road kill, is set out to see what kind of wildlife shows up. This black bear is getting a manicure.

This brown bear must have been on the move, perhaps checking out the camera since it’s looking right at it. Bears are curious, and they tend to want to investigate the flash from the camera. We’ve had some funny close up pictures of bears from the remote cameras. It’s interesting that such massive wildlife can be so close to urban areas.

On the theme of bears, it’s been a bear of a week for me, and it’s not going to let up for awhile. Between work work and personal work, I’ve got a lot to do before Magic’s surgery. At least the work work stuff is fun this time of year.

    I agree; what an incredible job where you get to see things like this. I know bears are dangerous, but these pictures are gorgeous.

    I love bears. Wow, I can’t imagine living in a country that really has them. My goodness, how exciting. They just look so, well bearlike. Have you ever seen one with your very own eyes?

    Very cool pics. I had no idea there were motion sensitive cameras out there in the wilderness. I'm in catch-up mode in blog-land & hope you're doing well.
