A great grizzly, stretched and yawned, waking up from his nap on a warm afternoon.
He splashed into the pool where Salmon fish darted and zipped through the water.
This bear decided to do a little fishing!
After several failed atempts, we could almost feel his pangs of hunger.
But with patient persistence and a cunning nature, as tension mounted in the crowd and we all held our breath, he guided his skitterish little fishy meal into a corner with precision using those giant paws.
Slowly and carefully, the bear had this fish just where he wanted it.
Then in one swift lunge and with a great splash, he caught the airborne fish between his claws and proceeded with bear-sized gulps to thoroughly enjoy his meal, seemingly oblivious to the astonished little boy directly behind the glass standing amid clapping and cheers of the spectators.
Surely a wonder, indeed!
Happy early b-day, my BEAR-ly 5 yo sweetheart! Mama loves you!
