It snowed last night and it doesn't look like it will snow again for a while. So it's today or nothing. I headed for the mountains. It turned out to be quite an interesting ride. However, the downhill was cold. My fingers were stinging from the cold.
I suddenly heard the noise of a big animal in the forest on my way up the mountain. I wonder what it is. I get off my MTB ... peer into the trees ... and see something that looks like a boar trap. Something was caught in it. It's bigger than a boar. Could it be a .... a .... a bear? Cool! I slowly get closer to it. Watch the video to see what happened.
I heard a tap tap tap tap tapping noise in a nearby tree. I slowly moved till the noise was directly above me. Wonder what it is! Can't see anything! Hang on! There's a small bird tapping the branch. I couldn't get a good shot on my camera. Just then I discovered that my camera can take zoomed up video. I didn't know that. Unfortunately, the bird had stopped tapping on the branch. Now it was eating an insect or something. I captured that on video.
