The Bear

After traveling through the Cades Cove area of the Smoky Mountains National Park, I got disappointed that I didn't see as much wildlife as I wanted. Of course, being a Nature Photographer, I realize nature is what it is when you find it. And, it's always beautiful.

As we turned a corner after spending several hours in Cades Cove, we came upon cars parked alongside the road. On the hillside were 3 bears, Mama and her babies. I managed to get this photo.

Also, if you go to see Black Bears or anywhere were you might encounter them, READ all the information YOU RECEIVE so you can protect yourself and the Bear. Listen to the Park Rangers too. They know what to do. I was surprised at how many people got dangerously close to the bears to get a photo and were pretty rude to the ranger. She's trying to save your life and the bear and your rude??

Anyway, I hope you like this photo.
