Little bear has been on the back deck for the past 15 minutes, right at the back door, checking out the empty recycle bins. He got up on top of the grill and tried to get it open.
Returning from errands about 1:30 PM and starting out the back door, little bear was sitting on the big rock drinking from my hummingbird feeder. QUITE A SURPRISE! He retreated to the tree when I shot this photo. Now the feeder is PERMANENTLY RETIRED FOR THE SUMMER.
