Regina Keller, no stranger to bears, has been taking pictures of the wildlife in her backyard for 12 years.
Her home is remote and backs up to the George Washington National Forest in Fort Valley, Virginia, so she is used to a variety of furry visitors including deer, bears, foxes, and squirrels.

As the bear walked around, she recognized him and realized she hadn't seen him in her yard in two years.
"He wandered around the backyard... and went over by the pool and dipped his big paw in the water... and then climbed right in and laid down. He seemed so content and refreshed."

She said she had retreated to a chair by the door to her home just to observe him. The bear stayed in the pool relaxing and napping for about an hour before he was chased off by the sound of her grandchildren arriving in her driveway with their dogs.

"It was neat to see and neat that I had my camera with me to capture it," she said.

1. I look forward to the day when I can sleep that well

and take a restful nap. Without thinking about politics, or illness, or when will I see my children again?

Beautiful picture. We have a family of deer that sleep in our front yard under the trees and are frequently visited by wild turkeys and occasional raccoons and skunks. And we live in town!

Thanks for sharing KY!
