Bears:
I may have posted pictures here, dont remember - But I know I posted them in the On30 lounge.
I live in NE Pennsy on the weekends and soon to retire there. Like mentioned, the bears have no where else to go....
I have had two big males (over 400#)up on my deck which is 17 feet off the ground. They come up the trees, believe it or not.
We also have a mamma & 2 cubs roaming the lake, and she is the most dangerous.
Speaking of tags - The last one on my deck had a tag in each ear and a very large leather collar on....I don't think they bothered him as he tore apart my metal feeders like they were tissue paper!



....Just my 2 cents

Karl:

Great shots! I especially liked the shot of the male hummingbird. We have one or more around here, but I seldom get to take photos of it as the area female(s) always chase it away. Their ruby colored neck feathers really shine in the right light.

This is one of the first Eagles to arrive at Squaw Creek Refuge, MO. At the height of the season there are usually 300,000 to 400,000 Snow Geese and approx 350 Eagles.

This was a monopod shot, as there wasn't time to use a tripod... I am still working on "steading up" my shots, but the long lens and the 'pod is messing with me.

I didn't take this picture but I thought it was interesting. This maneuver however cost the crocodile his life. More pictures and the whole story here: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/11/16/article-1228242-073BC6CA000005DC-405_964x535.jpg

As you think, so will you be.

Not sure that this qualifies as "Wildlife" but it may cheer you up as a reminder of the season rapidly approaching

The crocodile vs hippos scene is really impressive, Rick. Hippos are really very dangerous animals.
Shortliner, a nice song with great singers...

Frederic, you're right about hippos being dangerous, they kill more humans annually than any other animal.

As you think, so will you be.

With fall upon us, my days of sitting in the back yard taking photos of birds and squirrels have passed. In order to try and attract blue jays so I could photograph them, I placed a tray feeder with shell peanuts not too far from the first floor window, where I could shoot in comfort.

As you can see by the shot below, this was not to be. Several crows spotted the peanuts and made many attempts to get them, and finally succeeded. Here's one approaching the hanging feed tray that is too small to support them:



They eventually learned to get a peanut by just grabbing it as they slowly passed by. And the squirrels made quick meals too, jumping right up the metal pole. I took the feeder down after taking some of these shots, time for a new plan!
