Flash By!

The prompt:  As she searched, her movements were frantic.

 Danny sat in the blind, shivering. The temperature had plummeted at sunset, but he couldn’t leave. Fifteen feet below him, a female grizzly stood erect on her hind legs and sniffed the air. His platform was hidden in branches but his scent must have smelled appetizing.  He whispered a prayer, fumbling with his phone. No service. The bear snorted. She lumbered through the brush, batting aside the saplings . As she searched, her movements were frantic. She raised her immense head and growled.   Moments later, her cub gamboled up to meet her. She nosed it and they both meandered away.   

I wonder what everyone else wrote. Let’s find out!
