I have seen a rash of black bears this spring during my number of outings, however was surprised to encounter the largest one at my back door in Port Carling. It retreated to the side of the road then chose to cross just as a car was approaching. Thankfully the driver was quick enough to slam on his brakes in time to avert a tragedy.

One of my favourite signs of spring is when the trilliums appear. I intended only to photograph a single flower, however after getting into position I noticed how the second flower dovetailed nicely with the first, and was pleased with this result. The floral emblem of Ontario, trilliums are white at first, then turn pink when they wilt.
