The bear comes back
That hollow red fir in Sierra County was an enchanting place, and I wasn't ready to pull the camera after just one month.
A natural shelter like that is such an attraction to wildlife that you never know what's going to stick its head in the door.
The yearling bear visited on four more occasions, giving us a better selection of portraits, but on the second visit it knocked the camera ajar.
We might have missed quite a show if it had remained pointing at the entrance, but by a stroke of good luck it was still upright and aimed at a pile of carpenter ant frass.
Next time you'll see an incidental visitor, after that an unabashed show of sensuality.
