Who let the bears out

The weather has been great. The hell with yard work, there's photos to be taken. You know the bears have to be active at AWCC.
This black bear just had to stand up and see what was around. We arrived right after their feeding time, so Kuma was probably looking for a place to crash.
This one found its place and was looking around one last time.
It wasn't the brown bears feeding time yet. So what else do you do on a hot 65° day? Wrestle in the pool er ah pond. Joe Boxer and Patron splash some water around.
 I bet this guy is thinking "Silly bears!" This eagle is a wild one just stopping by for a visit.
Thanks to my photography partner for the day, Amanda. We kept the laughs going and still got some good shots in.


Great shots- especially love the eagle :-)

It's great to see those bears, Dave! It's amazing that you're having 65 degree temps already. Enjoy all that sunshine and warmth!
I've just watched "Bears" (the movie) so this post was especially timely, Dave. Your blog is great fun and the photography spectacular!

Wonder filled shots!
Great shots! I'd love to visit Alaska someday . . . though I probably wouldn't want to be quite so close to the bears. I'm slow. :)

Great photos! I especially like the bald eagle.
I've never made it to the wildlife center - I'll have to make sure I do next time I'm going through Anchorage. Bears are usually the one animal I hope NOT to see, but this looks like a great way to get up close.
Funny observations.. Lovely phots, especially the first one. Thanks for linking up to the #SundayTraveler.
