Nap time for bear

If you go back through the seasonal archives here at OnLocation, there are numerous photographs of wild creatures taken close by. I enjoy photographing urban wildlife here in North Idaho and have emassed quite a network of people who are quick to call me when something exciting is spotted in town. This morning was no exception when a black bear (that's brown in color) made its way to White Pine Park on North Spokane Street just a few blocks from my house. It was interesting to see Idaho Fish & Game, Post Falls Police and Kootenai County Fire and Rescue quickly tranquilze and then safely lower the bear from a tree-top branch. HERE is an album of photos with captions of the event.
