I know! If it did come out of tree, we would have had our car right next to us, so we probably would have been Ok... And there was a pretty deep ditch in between us and the bear, but it was a sight to see.

Impressive! Probably a good thing it stayed in the tree.

...so non-threatening. He's obviously very comfortable resting his head on a paw. Lovely spotting !
