Another Black Bear Video

Last August, while hiking at the Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area

Please read: Part One – Close Encounter With Bears

Part Two – Another Black Bear Video

Fortunately, the bear appeared preoccupied with his search for lunch, shifting rocks in the stream to un-house potential sources of food. I stood behind trees, when possible, watching the bear move further away as I cautiously followed.

At a switchback in the trail, I paused to record this video with the zoom feature on my camera. Although the stream was generally quite shallow, the bear found a deeper pool in which to relax and keep cool –

Near the end of the video, you’ll observe (as I did) that the bear elevates his nose, sniffing in the air to identify an odor of my presence. At this point, the trail changed direction, and so did I – uphill and away!

Footnote: I didn’t realize it at the time, but, if you turn up the volume on the video – and, the volume on your computer/device – you’ll hear the bear grunt as he detects my scent – yikes!!!

If you like the header-image (above), it’s based on a photograph I took that day while hiking. A larger size is available on prints (and more) in my galleries at Pixels and/or Fine Art America. Thanks for stopping by!

Video Tapes Abstract

Working with a photograph of several video tapes, I combined layers, blend modes, textures and other effects to create this fun graphic. Without a VCR, I’ve repurposed these cassettes through design, which is now available in my galleries at Society 6 and Pixels.
