There Be Bears Here

How's this for a way to start the month? Sugar-frosted bear scat. Now I ask you, who else brings stuff like this? ;)

I was out in the snow working on a proposed trail today when I happened across this fairly respectable bear scat. It wasn't terribly fresh but it wasn't particularly old either. The bears have been fairly active this winter because there has been food available. The berries and seeds are getting scarce now so I suppose most of the bears are enjoying a nice winter's nap. I still kept my eyes open while I worked - it's never a good idea to startle a bear...

Well, I've never found a crappy post at this blog. (Before.) It inspires me to do the same. Now I just need a bear at Roundrock.

pablo,
I am currently working on compiling a file of photos for a truly crappy post - bear scat through the year. I am still short a couple of months though so stay tuned :)

Miracle of miracles, Blogger actually let me post a comment - will wonders never cease?

I don't feel like such a weirdo, now:0) I photographed some very strange scat on the boardwalk in Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in Florida. Now, if I can just screw up the courage to post it - I'd love your opinion.

cathy,
By all means post that scat photo! And don't feel like a weirdo - feel like a scatologist :)

I hate to break it to you, but your idea for a new breakfast cereal stinks.

But, FC, it's chock-full of fiber - just the ticket for those of us of a certain age ;)
