In spite of it all; I am exhausted... and so...
I will show you some photos that I took today on a brief walk-about the yard.
... and I will add.... that I saw a nice big pile o' poo left from one of the bears that frequent our yard... right by the patio.
So in answer to the age old question: Does a bear poo in the woods?
Yes, but they also drop loads by the house.
And it looks like he found the corn cobs I put in the compost. :)

and a white hickory tussock moth caterpillar.
