Bear Triplets and More



Last Sunday I kept putting off going to check the cameras because it looked like rain all afternoon and it never rained a drop. Same thing today so I decide to go ahead and check them early. So on the 4-wheeler and away I go. Check my first camera and what do I have...ANTS. Could someone please explain to me how ants get inside a "water proof" camera??? This is the third time I've had this happen on three different cameras. #@%&%$#@!!! So I remove the batteries, clean it out and get it operational again. Back on the 4-wheeler and what do I feel?? Some type of liquid falling on me.... #@%&%$#@!!! Luckily I'm about a 1/4 mile from the cabin so I throw my steed in gear and high tail it to get on the porch right as the downpour starts. I pretty much like a cat...I hate to get wet. The dude singing in the rain isn't me. If you see me out in the rain cover the kids ears because I'll be the one cussing in the rain. So after about 20 minutes the rain stops and I head out to check the rest of the camera. I'm happy to say the rest of the trip was uneventful.



However, it was well worth getting wet to see the really good pics I got last week. Luckily I got some better pics of the triplets, another bigger bear, and a hawk.

I'll start out with the triplets and hopefully get the other posted later this week.

You'll notice in the first couple of pics it looks like mama knows something isn't quite right but she's not sure what it is. Luckily she don't bother the camera.

Great pics of the little ones! It's not often you see triplets. Ants seem to be able to get into the darnedest places.

I'm intruiged with your bear-cams Joe; these are on your own property I take it. How interesting to come home with the cameras and check the contents 'cepting the ants! You need a product like red-syrup drops named Ant-Rid here. Just leave some in an airtight container but with a little hole at the bottom - maybe an empty tin....placed stategically near the cams might work. I'm wondering if it's something from the batteries that is attracting them, or even a dry place to nest?

Triplets! Cool - that's a lot of mouths to feed. Mom sure has a long nose... It'll be fun to follow them over the summer.
