Well, despite having opposable thumbs, this whole making the video camera talk to the computer business is quite the challenge. It wasn't getting it on the blog I was worried about, it was getting it on the computer. I managed it, but it wasn't exactly a breeze.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the rather freaky "bear in the backyard" video. Apologies for the shaky bits and the longness of it. I was about done with my computer fiddling tolerance and didn't get very far in learning how to edit the thing.
I took some of the advice in the comments and called Mass. Wildlife. They just took down the report. So I won't worry about bearfriend. And I'll still hang out in the backyard when the kids play back there. Because yes, that's their sandbox in the video. Eep.
