It is time to say goodbye to the Bears of the Anan Preserve. Letting them hang around for a second week allowed the camera and I to spend time out in the world. Always a joy.
Some of these clips have appeared in an earlier vacation movie but the subscription list has gotten much larger than the vacation movie distribution list (thank you). Besides, these are favorites. The patience of old friends is appreciated.
A bit of housekeeping; we have decided to post larger (not longer) versions of the movies. After all, it is a video blog intended to eventually find it’s way to large screen televisions. We apologize for delays caused by slower internet connections. If we get a lot of negative feedback an adjustment will be made.
Also, the camera shakes a bit in this one. The situation demanded full zoom without a tripod, managed through eyes nowhere near as strong as the lens. A hard combination that yielded a lucky result. The Eagle in the Grizzly shot was more of a surprise for me when I played the tape then it will now be for you. Housekeeping complete.
Meanwhile, back at the preserve, the Bears are trying their luck at fishing. A Grizzly cub takes a lazy lesson from a mother who looks nothing like a politician. While a overwhelmed Black Bear cub perches in a tree.
The cub in the tree is a very brief shot. SlowTV is not always possible when Momma Bear at the base of the tree, prefers brevity. She wasn’t into filming and arguing seemed foolish.
Please return with me now, up to Alaskan Bear country for a two minute escape to a different reality. There are fish to catch.
