Bear coming out from behind a stump

There have been a lot of bear sightings over the last year, and many people in Bent Tree have taken some amazing bear pictures.  A few years ago, it seemed like I saw bears everywhere I went in Bent Tree.  Then I hit a long, dry spell.  Until last Monday, I hadn’t seen a bear since 2014.  On Monday, this bear appeared from behind an old stump.  I was able to grab my camera and snap a couple of pictures before the fast-moving bear went across the street and behind some trees.  The pictures aren’t great, but I’m happy.
