Lions, and Tigers.....and
This morning, Emma Sage, matter-of-factly says to me .....
"Look Mommy, a bear"
"Yeah right", I think to myself [thinking it is one of the neighbors black labs that like to come over to our property to 'visit' [ie. mark their teritory]
So, I look out the window....thinking I will see Rider from up the lane....
The black figure moves towards the swingset [and at this point our two dogs outside start barking like crazy] and I realize from it's movement that this is no dog...it was a black bear.
I quickly yell to Rick that there is a bear on the property......and luckily I am able to grab my camera which is right in the dining room/porch [where we are witnessing the bear from...because it was Otto's birthday yesterday and I had left the camera there from our birthday pictures]
and this is what I was able to capture. At this point, the bear is heading towards the top of our property [about 25 yards from the house] and she turns back [because Lucy is now outside and barking right at her a few feet away].....
Hummm.....did I tell you I live in Jersey [yes, New Jersey]
