Sometimes one has to go out to seek nature and at others times nature comes to your back door. This is a cinnamon colored black bear cub who lived in a field below our house in Leavenworth, WA from the early spring of 2017 until it was time for hibernation late this fall. He showed up as a very small cub and we never did see a mother with him. We had the pleasure of watching him grow for the whole season as well as change color from this beautiful cinnamon color to almost completely black with just touches of the cinnamon color around his face. One day when I was out on our deck I saw him sneaking up from the bottom of the field and went right to the game camera with have set up….. he was very curious about this human object at the edge of his field and the smells…I was lucky enough to be there at the right time and had my camera waiting on the table and was able to snap a few shots.
