Two scary moments that I still think about :

1) While in Alaska, we were in a National Forest birding and a bear cub came running by.   Immediately we moved as far away as possible.  Did not want to meet Mama bear!

2) While in Florida, we were at Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge and heard a hissing sound.   We then realized an alligator nest was nearby and Mama gator was signaling a warning.  Made a quick u-turn and moved out of the area away from the nest.
