Bear in Tree

Like a totem pole, my neighbor’s tree offered a stack of bears one morning this week—two cubs near the top, one right on top of the other and a third, possibly older sibling, down lower. The two little ones were beyond the reach of my camera in the twilight of a fall dawn on the north side of tall mountain but the lowest bear lingered down low enough that I was able to get a few decent shots.

 Thanks to my neighbor for calling me to come see and thanks to Humboldt for being the place to see such sights.
