Bear Hiding in the Daisies

This black bear came wandering into the garden this morning and slowly headed over to the magnificent sword fern behind him

He started digging at the base of the fern and I thought he might be hunting for mice or moles. Every so often he’d stand up and look around

He soon lumbered off and I went out to scare him away (don’t like him to feel welcome around here). Going past the fern I noticed some very agitated wasps where the bear had been digging. Realizing there wasn’t going to be a honey haul he headed back into the forest.
