Thanks to the social isolation of the pandemic, wild animals in my northerly area now regularly step out to enjoy our seemingly empty towns. Moose in the streets, deer in the gardens. Skunks everywhere. And bears lounging on the deck.
My sister had 4 bears visiting on her deck for her birthday in May; a gigantic female and three cubs. I immediately decided to throw a bear's tea party but only two showed up.
Here they are offering a toast and much love to all.
