In only two days time she got pictures of three different bears including the "Famous Leetonia Snaggle Nose," whose deformed face and size is enough to frighten most city people. He showed up and night and took a little swim in the pond. So it isn't as easy to see him as the other bears. The other two were a bit shyer and a lot smaller. I am guessing they weigh one to two hundred pounds compared to Snaggle Nose's five hundred pounds. As many of you regular readers will know Snaggle Nose lost part of his face in a fight with another bear about four years ago. This hasn't slowed him down and I wouldn't be surprised if some of the other bears in the pictures are his prodigy.
If you click on the individual pictures they will get larger and you can see the detail Kim caught in the hummingbird's feathers. The picture of the Indigo Bunting looks like it could go on the cover of a bird magazine.
For any of you who love birds this is a great place to watch them in the summer months we have so many varieties of birds you don't see much in the city. Kim got quite a few good pictures during her only two days and I can't begin to show you all of them. But it is nice to see them as bright and detailed as I see them everyday, while I am Lost in Leetonia. Thanks again to Kim for letting me share these with you. Maybe she will come back next year and stay a bit longer. Mountain girl, Paula, logging out.
