Watching me?

Yesterday late evening, 11.00 pm.

I am sitting in the living room, reading National Geographic Magazine.

Out on the deck there is a soft noise.

I look up, expecting to see one of our nursing Raccoon mothers to have limbed up, to beg for a treat of Cat kibbles or Sunflower seeds.



raised up to full 2.5 meter size,

HUUUUUUGE paws touching the glass

 is our large male Bear!

About a meter away from me and looking down on me with curious eyes, as if to say:

” What are you doing?????”

I get up, move to the Glass, our paws/ hands are touching the glass on opposite sides.

Just for a second.


I call out to Peter:

“Peter!! The Petze is here!”

Petze is having none of that.

Visiting time is over.

With hardly a sound he goes down on all 4 , wields around the deck furniture and jumps down – 2 meters to the grass below.

A second later the black night swallowed him.

This morning however we find out, he  swallowed all the sweet juice out of both Hummingbird feeders.

  1. Peter just gave me a picture of the paw print he found on the sliding door downstairs = in his workshop, so I will edit it into the post above 🙂

  2. How blessed you are Our gift this summer was one supper time looking out the window and seeing a male cardinal get sunflower seeds one by one and feed them to an young one that sat on the bar across the top of the feeders
