Lake Mary is an urban area next to the Wekiva forest which is a protected area. The office I work out of (day job still), is adjacent to a golf course and is about a mile from this forest. Every year we get bears stocking up on food, berries mainly, for the winter. This year one of the bears took up residence in a tree next to the office building next door. Who knew they slept in trees? Anyway, the bear keeps to himself mostly and only comes down for bathroom breaks, water from the pond by this tree, or to go berry hunting around the parking lot. I did get a little close by accident, he chased me off. It was an accident, I was staying well clear of where I thought he was… turns out he wasn’t where I expected. Overall though he keeps to himself. So here are a few shots I grabbed of him.
