20140220-183221.jpgOur dog noticed this little guy on the bridge above the creek behind our house. I didn’t notice how closely his colors matched the moss until I looked at the pictures later. I could be wrong, but I believe this is an immature stink bug. Thankfully, he did nothing to confirm that.

Rare Bear


At once the worst and best photo of this series, you can see in the glass these kids reacting to the unexpected behavior of this Grizzly at the zoo today. After pacing with it’s partner in the background for a good while, it decided a dip in the pool was in order, and delighted us by diving for sticks, scratching it’s back on a rock, and bouncing bouyantly for no reason apparent other than the joy of it.20130815-185326.jpg




As excited as we were to see this, I wouldn’t have thought it anything special until a woman exclaimed, “In all the years I’ve been coming here, I’ve never seen it do anything like this!” That hit the spot!20130815-185419.jpg
