And here's another one.

By the way this last bear told me that the day before he ate a guy wearing a P.E.T.A. shirt. He said he nearly choked on the irony.

Oh wow, Paco! That's some walk to school!! And your son has clearly inherited his father's eye.

 

Isn't it late for bears to be out & about in Dec/Jan, though? Especially with young cubs?

Sangeeta , it was last week of November , almost 3 months already.

 

You are right because it was the last time he saw them since then . In the previous 2 months he was lucky to see 14 of them in the way to school .

I love those spectacled bears, @@Treepol ! We're seriously thinking about a family trip to Peru (well I've been thinking about it for a while but now more seriously) and definitely want to visit Chaparri!

If that bear portrait isn't the epitome of “up close and personal”, I don't know what is.

How you managed such an image without yourself becoming lunch, I have no idea!

It's a GREAT photo !!!!!!!!!
