Saw this at lunch yesterday at the country club I was at. A momma bear sleeping in a pine tree. What you can't see is the cub under her and the other one about 6 feet away.
That a black bear or a grizzly, hard to see with the obstructed view. I always go by the ears and the hump or lack thereof on the neck.

I've had a few chances to see bears in the wild, all but once from a comfortable distance. Awesome to see in person.

Wow. I've always wanted a Maine Coon; they're so beautiful. My family always referred to cats that size as "cogs:" cats big enough to be dogs.

And very VERY chatty. But they are so laid-back and chill. They're the best.

Like auntiehill, I've also always wanted a Maine Coon. They're so big, beautiful, and have wonderful personalities.

Wow! Great!

A couple pet pics:

Lily is nearing 15 years old, and her walks have needed to be shorter because her hips are not strong, but she does love being in the sun.

She's a black bear and we were probably closer than we should have been, especially with cubs in the tree with her.
