Persistent = tenacious and enduring; to go on resolutely in the face of opposition or importunity.

This bear also shows the qualities of determination! The photos got out a sequence a little when I was uploading them, but you'll get the idea.













Frank Lloyd Wright:
"I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen."
This is certainly a devoted bear!

The person who sent me this also speculated about what that line was made of. It had to be very strong to hold that bear without breaking.

I learned two things from visiting your blob today: (1) a small line and support a bear and (2) bears like bird seed or sunflower seeds.

Anna said...

Wow....that is persistence! I admire that. But, what does that bear weigh?

poopie said...

I could use a good dose of that right now!

tiff said...

whoa - this is not in your backyard, is it??

PI said...

That's a lovely bear! I saw a couple in Canada but not nearly so close. Maybe just as well.
How strong does a line have to be to bear a bear?
Taxi!

Well, that certainly calls into question my attempts to protect my food during my backpacks.

I knew squirrels were far too ingenious at getting birdseed, but this is ridiculous.

Silly me, I thought he was just... hanging around. ;)

Awesome photos - I just love black bears they are so creative at times! When I lived in upstate NY, they were known for breaking into family's camps in order to steal things that had been left beind in the off season (toothpaste, PB cans, bird seeds)

BTW, Carmi sent me :)

Unremitting devotion. Great word combo. :) That was one determined bear!

Unbelievable, a cute bear, bear with me, how can that string bear that bear?

Blitz Krieg said...

That is great. Can't wait to show my daughter this evening, she loves crazy animals.

You will say that these pictures came from someone you knew or something someone sent you and not from your own back yard! Yikes! I wouldn't want to own that feeder... with the poor eyesight that our dog Max is developing, he would probably see the bear and think... "Man, that's a big squirrel!"

Raggedy said...

That is persistence!
Amazing he didn't fall.

A lesson learned from that Bear, eh!

BTW: I noticed I didn't make the blogroll on your new blog. I read where you don't like music on blogs, and yes, I've posted my own recordings on my blog before, but to my knowledge it didn't play automatically or is even still posted there since I swapped ISPs. Most folks complained they couldn't get it to play. But if you know of anywhere I can move my blog where music is acceptable, please tell me and I'll go there. We all have our talents and want to share them on our blogs. Unlike a painter or flower arranger, mine includes sound, lol! Anyway, Sorry if I said or did something wrong. Between folks complaining of music, long posts, word verification-- I can't do anything right these days :(

You have no idea what bears can do...climb HUGE Ponderosa pines to get to a small finch feeder, break a planter just because, look in the picture window of your living room to see what's on TV and smack a garage door after you ran for your life with the garbage you were putting in the truck for a dump run.

Weary Hag said...

oh neat! I'll bet that was some sort of cable as oppposed to a typical line like a clothesline. Ya think?

In any case, the photos are great.

It's sad to think just how hungry this furry guy must have been just to get at some bird seeds.

Rhea said...

Cool photos. I've seen a bear just once in real life. That was in Washington State on a hiking trip. It was walking across a road, not slinking across a clothesline, like the one you have here.

sage said...

boy, I thought my deer were bad at getting into the bird feeder!

Memories Catcher said...
