Alamosa and the Three Bears

Yesterday afternoon one of the three bears that has been hanging around town decided to camp out in a tree on my street.

This is just one block north of our house.

I wasn't the only nut with a camera either. There was a pretty good crowd of bear watchers. The Division of Wildlife roped off the block. I guess so the bear could take a good nap.

This is the third time that I know of that one of these bears has decided to spend the day in town napping in a tree. Doesn't he/she look comfy?

Later in the afternoon they set up a trap underneath the tree and put food in the trailer.

The bear didn't seem too impressed.

He/she was too busy posing for the paparazzi.

OH MY GREAT GOODNESS. He/she looks so cute, but then, we all know what happens when a bear gets upset......
Good to see that you were keeping your distance.

Goodness. Did they get him? I'd be afraid if I saw one loose.

I love this. You got great photos. I have never been fortunate enough to see a bear, what with all the camping and stuff I've done. I'm sort of jealous. :-)
