All God's Creatures Sunday

We have so many strange and amazing creatures that live here in the desert. Many of them are a little creepy, and some really beautiful. So I was thinking, uh oh, I should share them with you! And since Sunday is God's day, and these being His creatures, maybe I'll make it a weekly post. If it gets too freaky, I'll stop.

But this first week, I'll start with something really cute! Cute if you're not face to face with her!

This was a photo on the front page of our local newspaper. It was taken in a campground in Carr Canyon, one of the places we go to shoot pictures in our mountain. The campground has been closed temporarily to give mama and her babies some latitude, and campers some safety.

If you didn't catch it, look above mama's head! Fish & Game officials stated they saw 4 bears within 15 minutes!

We've encroached on wildlife's habitats for years, it's about time they do the same! I just would hate to see anyone hurt (people or bears). :) M

Umm... I'm pretty sure that's a fake bear. I had a Teddy Bear who's arms made that same pose.

Wow! Really cool to see those bears:)

Closed temporarily?

I'm NEVER staying there.

I love that picture. Good idea for a Sunday post. The bears should have the rights to the woods first I think.
