This was the nuisance bear breaking into houses near the Fort Ripley area. I got this photo Tuesday, June 28th, at 4:52pm looking in my laundry room window on White Pine Drive. I was at work that day when it was snooping around in broad daylight. My dad encountered a bear while sitting on our porch a week earlier and I put a trail camera out to see how often it came around. Turns out, around dinner time.
My girlfriend took this shot as we were driving east on MN 23 just west of Beaver Creek. The two bucks were running one after the other on the left ditch, then crossed the road, and continued running alongside us in the right ditch. Won't happen again!
Wolf pack, an unusual site in our area October 19, 2014
We saw four wolves running through our property just southeast of Alexandria. By the time I grabbed the camera, they were going up the hill and I was shooting right directly into the sun. Got three on camera at one time and a fourth was off to the right.
We just put out our feeder after seeing a Ruby-Throated hummingbird the other day but the range of these little guys isn't even east of the Rockies and somehow he made it to MN. Taken close to nightfall on May 16th.
