Spring Fever Bears
When spring comes, the she-bears in my neighborhood are shameless flirts. No video narration is needed to make that point. Have a look and see if you agree.

The bear's rubbing tree
The Rubbing Tree from Chris Wemmer on Vimeo.
I set this trail camera on a meandering game trail with a long view.
I expected clips of the usual cast of characters, but soon learned that the trail passed a bears' rubbing tree, a mountain lion scrape, and a pit stop for a bobcat.
I pointed the camera at the rubbing tree.
Though it must surely reek of bear, it smells like tree bark to me.
A lot of critters besides bears check it out, and gray foxes occasionally pee on the stump.
This film shows last month's action at the bears' rubbing tree.
