Wow! Stunning once again Alan! And as for the song – where is Little White Dove??? ;)
How did you know that,Carol ? you’re too young to remember it!! as for the dove, I think the bear ate it !!thanks aginalan
Brilliant close Alan, you sure it wasn’t you running.
then I would have to run backwards to get the shot!! on the ice with a bear running at full speed…. I don’t think so ! but it’s nice of you to think of my health!! thanks Jude !!!alan
Unfortunately I remember it well! lol
thanks again, Livvy !!!!alan
Wow, comin’ right at you! Look at the size of those paws! Fantastic shot, Alan!
No Dottie, he was heading towards his trainer and a bucket of fresh herrings!Ther was only the traoner and myself present so It gave MANY good shots!This cub could lift a big truck tyre with its jaws !! thanks once more Dottie !!!!alan
If you look you can see black markings on his forehead and legs- that’s from the tyre !
Fascinating, Alan! Another one that it is hard to stop looking at! He appears to be concentrating very hard on whatever he is looking at….(you)? I wouldnt want to get in the way of those paws/claws!
No not me! I was well hidden almost underground, behind thick glass looking up at him !I had an arrangement with his trainer- he came with some fish !! thanks, Mary !!!!alan
