The Bear:

In the example I gave, I said the following:

“…“This photo was taken in the local nature center. To be honest, I’m a little bit obsessed with black bears. I can’t believe I live somewhere that has bears in the area. One came into our yard a couple of years ago. Our dog scared it off and it climbed the neighbor’s tree. It stayed there for a couple of hours before heading off down the street.”

Passive Voice Example – This photo was taken at the local nature center.

I used the passive because I wanted to focus on the photo. Additionally, it was obvious who took the photo (me).

Obsessed – To be honest, I’m a little bit obsessed with black bears

Obsessed can be used in a negative way. Here, I used to say that I’m really interested in black buys.

Scare Off – Our dog scared it off and it climbed the neighbor’s tree.

This means that my dog made the bear leave. See more phrasal verbs here.
