What stunning pics, Mechtild! I find it hard to imagine seeing a bear taking a stroll in our garden!! The most exciting thing we've ever had is foxes and we haven't seen one of those for ages; squirrels and birds are now our main inhabitants. I particularly love the deer pics - the one taken in Feb 09 where he's staring into the camera is so amazing - and that spotted fawn is just too adorable for words!!

Well, you don't live in a small city in the middle of northern wastes, either. Of course there are no bears! Do you ever imagine, just for fun, what England might have been like in the days when there still were bear and boar and wolves? Where you live wouldn't exist, of course, but you could imagine yourself in a home of the day, whether humble or wealthy.

Glen took a lot of lovely photos of that group of deer that day. They could make a post all by themselves! They let him come very close, all of them young, half-tame deer that hang out in a park near a breakwater on Lake Superior, not far from where he works in a small town up the shore, about 25 miles from here. It seems there is a small herd that lives in that park. I've taken friends on the little walking trail that goes through it before and sometimes have come across some of the deer. They stand right in the path and don't move off into the trees until you are nearly face to face. If you stand still they just stay where they are, browsing the leaves and twigs.
