A small bear showed up this evening and seems to wave to draw attention to the fact there was no bird food in the feeders for him to eat. Disappointed he headed down the woods to the next property in hopes that their feeders are full. He was small, about 150lbs.

Standing in the middle of the road with the sun setting behind was a doe.The wildlife this weekend was everywhere. Fox,deer and many bear. Spotted one 400lb male bear right near Bayfield's city limits. Saw other smaller bears. The local residents of Bayfield are well aware of the bears and their paths into and out of town. Big papa bear was very curious, I talked to him from the safety of the car window and he just looked at me from 25 yards away. A bear that size really makes you think.I wasn't going for a walk that was for certain. I got a picture but it was very near dusk and I only got his backside.

Buddy the bear wasn't invited to the deck party and was told to leave. He wasn't on the list of
guests and was dismayed by the fact he couldn't get a snack. As he walked away he turned and gave a look of disgust. OK he said, I'll return to the woods. But I'll be back after dark.

Had to purchase a game cam and play with it recently. We got shots of raccoons,deer and even the neighborhood dog.But what I really want is a picture of the local bear prowling around at night. It's all good fun and the creatures of the woods don't mind a treat in exchange for a picture

Before Memorial Park today it was a green space called Lake Park. These old postcards are a excellent way to see the past which sometimes would be unknown.That is the Bayfield Hotel in the background that burned and was replaced with the present day Bayfield Inn.
